Why pay $50 more for a motherboard you don't need when you could use that $50 to get something you can use, like a higher-end video card or a larger SSD, or even a game to play on your fancy new system.

Pssssssssssst why not read the second half of my argument. Aside from the fact that I had a typo (to is supposed to be do) I already stated that it didn't do anything for 99.999999% of the users out there. The key difference is that because the 200 dollar mobo has better reliability AND it comes with free ram, the price argument is pretty much useless. Now I am certainly not blind. I do recognize that there is a price difference of about 30 bucks (if you assume the free ram is worth 40) however even that price is compensated for the fact that the M-Power board has been OC tested, it has a lower chance of failure compared to the asrock board, it is will overclock slightly better than the asrock board.

To me 30 bucks to get a better board is worth it in this particular situation. Considering the OP is willing to spend as much as he is, the extra cost in motherboard is REALLY not a big deal, and to be honest there is noting preventing the OP from becoming one of those .000001% exceptions to the rule.

So again, in THIS case, I would argue that a better motherboard is worth it.

Edit: You know what, scratch that. Go ahead and recommend whatever you want. I don't agree with you that the Mpower board is going to be any more reliable (possibly less DOAs, but that's about it) or that it will overclock any better, but you should be able to make the recommendation without me trashing it.
