MSI P67A-GD55 or Biostar TP67B+?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Which board should i go for? I've never had any problems with Msi about their mobos or Gpus so Msi is good in my book. Also the MSI seems to have more features than the Biostar, and i've never used Biostar before so i'm kind of worry here. I'm debating because the Biostar is a little bit cheaper than the MSI so it can save me a bit of money . Quite a few members on here seems to be happy with their Biostar TP67B+.

Not a huge fan of either company. But if its one or the other I say the MSI P67 GD55, heard and saw some good things about it...

There is an Asus P67 LE & Gigabyte P67 UD3 on that site as well for the same price.... Those are decent as well...

If only between those 2 mobos...get the MSI P67A GD55. It's basically a GD65 without the Marvell SATA III ports, rear ESATA ports, and no connecting heatpipe for the onboard heatsink mosfets. If cost is a concern, go for the Biostar...It's a good mobo as well.

Cost isn't really a concern, i just want to make it cost effective as much as possible. I can go with the more expensive boards no problem, i just like to save money on extra stuffs that i don't need. The GD55 has Intel Sata III which is good for my new Sata III SSDs. I think ill go with the GD55 since it's only $15 more than the Biostar after coupon n rebate. I did some Rmas with MSI before and they were fast so i guess MSI that is.

I heard this one was a good cheap one. I'm thinking about getting a 2500k right now but I want to keep it cheap, most bang for the buck. Does anybody know if this would be worth it more then going to a phenom II 1090t route?
