Yes. Your MSI board only has 3+1 power phases with no heatsinks. That Gigabyte board has 8+2 phases and a heatsink over them, so you can overclock as far as you would like with no worries. The MSI would assuredly die under heavy overclocks.

This.

That Gigabyte board still performs great and will let you go much further with your PII

The ma790xt was one of the best am3 overclocking motherboards. Go for it. The vrms are very well designed unlike the msi board which is not 125w ready.
