Asus M4GZ or MSI Z68A-GD55 (B3)

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I need to know whether i can buy the msi z68a-gd55 instead of the asus M4GZ since the latter is more expensive.
I'll be running crossfire and it is possible that i get an x-fi titanium sound card in the future.

I prefer blue to red. x)

Thanks for sharing your opinions. :3

Geez. x_x
y u kick me in the butt? It hurts bro.

But seriously, the reason why i want to avoid the asus board is because it's so damn expensive and you get an atx board in that price aka the msi.

Info: I'll be overclocking the i5 2500k to 4.5ghz. High end gaming with 6950 CF. Possible purchase of a noctua nh14-d for cooling. And also a pci sound card, probably the x-fi titanium. :3
