I'm debating these 2 mobos, my budget is preferably under $200. Should I also consider the Asrock Z87E ITX?
I'm primarily making a gaming rig and I plan to OC my 4770k to 4ghz (maybe a little higher depending on temps). I'm not sure if the Killer LAN on the MSI will make much difference. I also care about the sound card and I'm not sure which one is better (I'd rather not spend more on an add-on soundcard right now).
Also what's the difference between the MSI GD-45 and GD-65? From what I found the 65 is higher priced only because it offers 8 SATA ports vs. 6. I don't need 8 so 6 is fine.
Any input and opinion is appreciated!
