It's either the MSI or the ASUS.
They both have crossfire... They both support the CPU. And they are both blue/black... Sounds good to me. And very cheap compared to a 225-250$ Intel board.


I'm not quite sure why you were looking at $225-$250 Intel boards when you can get all you need for around $125. Anyway I'd get the Asus because the MSI seems to lack the amount of USB ports that I'd need.

I would get the amd if i was you...

It would leave more money towards other components and help make your system more balanced..
I cant see amd not being able to do anything that intel can..

If anything you might benefit from the extra cores

I've been pro AMD for a while now. The price difference used to be to great. Nowadays I say Intel. Price difference is not what it used to be and you can save money on your PSU. The most absurd part of Intel vs AMD right now is the difference in power draw. I'll be getting a 3570K and ASRock Extreme 4 combo from Microcenter as soon as they come back in stock. Black Friday cleaned them out (as if they were on a different sale).

if your now looking at AMD boards, take a look at the ASRock extreme4, I have it paired with an 8350 and works amazingly well... it wasn't the most popular 990fx board but it sure is a damn good one and competes with the top dogs. also has great support and features.

overclocks really well too

Honestly, Intel hands down its been that way since Core 2 came out. Im still on AMD works fine for me. A Core 2 quad should still handle just about everything if you ask me But thats just my opinion.
