  1. im trying to find a new decent mobo and i came across one that fits my budget. i am doing a whole pc rebuild so keep in mind i am getting more than this mother board.

    im trying to decide between this msi mobo http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/searchtools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3391323

    versus this asus mobo:http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3520077&CatId=2417

    the msi mobo comes right away like i would like it to. but the asus board may take 1-3 weeks :\ please some assistance

    I would go with the Asus board, just because of sheer experience with them :) .

    I've never used an Asus motherboard, although I've bought graphics cards made by Asus, but I have had very good experiences with MSI motherboards. I don't have experience with this MSI board but if it fit my requirements for a particular build, I would probably get it.

    Asus make good quality boards. This one that you are thinking of does not have integrated video and you will have to buy a PCI express. However the MSI board has integrated video and is cheaper.
    2 months ago I built another PC with MSI/CPU combo from tiger and so far is running very good. It is your choice and budget
