    Hi, look at the features of the 2 boards, Asus seams to have more. If you need them the choice is clear.

    +1 ASUS, I can't recommend MSI at all due to past experiences and experiences from my friends and colleagues.

    I have read the TECH-SPEC's from the ASUS site and I must say they really do make good boards.

    I myself is a BIG ASUS fan. but the MSI reviews are good as well.

    GURU! I have to say you do make a good point. My friends also do have bad experiences on the MSI's but reviews are telling otherwise.

    What were you're experiences??

    well I can recommend the CORSAIR Obsidian 650D case as I just built in one and it was a joy, really spacey inside great looking and really good temps with the 2 200mm fans.

    Id also recommend the 570 but not a palit one, as Iv had a lot of trouble with them, the msi or asus ones are great with twin fans they overclock great.

    also the cpu is a good chip good at over clocking, lots of reviews out there on it :)

    personally, i would go for a silverstone ft02, much better aircooling case than whatever you have listed there and still in the same price range

    as for a mobo, go for the asus boards, their efi bios are top of the line and easy to use if your overclocking (which i assume you are)

    as far as the gpu, go for that gigabyte 560 ti and overclock it like hell. the 570's tend to have issues with high overclocks due to a weak VRM design but the 560ti's overclock like a dream

    Agree with this. The FT02 is a great choice of case. My friend has one and it is excellent. TJ07 is better for water. TJ09 is good for air but can't really match the FT02 with it's rotated motherboard layout.

    Lots of RMAs, random parts of motherboards failing out of the blue that sort of stuff.

    I was eyeing on that ODSIDIAN 650D for quite sometime now. Been checking out Amazon and Excaliburpc for the price. The only sad thing now is that the card that i would be using to purchase the Case is only accepted in Amazon. im buying it online coz is really hard to find such a case here in Kuwait.

    Thanks for your 2cents guru!!

    Thanks for the 2cents in the GPU..i was reading the review on the GURU3d website and i now leaning towards the 560. With regards to the FT02, let me think about your point coz as of now i heading towards the CORSAIR obsidian 650d.

    I'll look into the reviews for the FT02 and try to decide.

    Thanks guru!!
