I havent owned either, ive only owned Asus too, but out of those boards the msi does have more vrm for the cpu but honestly once you get past 10 the perks are ungodly small, its 13 vrm vs 11 vrm on the gigabyte ( assuming im lazily counting right), though it really wont make a difference. aside from that they are pretty much identical, all same features, ports, slots. only other differences is that they have is different bio's. I'd kinda just go with the Gigabyte board to save some money unless you like the darker theme color of the msi. hope this aids a bit.
