I realize there is a very similar topic, probably underneath this post but I'm still in need of a little advice.
I'm building a Micro ATX gaming build in a Corsair 350D and can't decide on what Mobo to get.
I thought I had decided on the ASUS Gryphon, since ASUS has a good reputation, has great features, and great performance. Right now it's selling around the $160 price point.
But then I stumbled across the MSI Z87M GAMING Micro ATX board on Newegg. Does anyone have any experience with this brand of MSI boards, or this board in particular? Seems to be the mATX version of the full ATX board. From what I understand it's only been out for a couple months but I couldn't find very many quality/in depth reviews on it. Mostly just what MSI has on their marketing page. I can't tell if the features on this board would be useful or if their gaming branded boards are basically just marketing BS.
I like the color scheme on the MSI board better than the ASUS. But I'm willing to go with performance over aesthetics if it comes down to that. My GPU is ASUS as well if that helps, I dunno if matching brands make much difference though.
Thanks for your help!
