I have a quick question, why those particular models? I noticed you didn't include any Gigabytes or my personal choice EPoX. Do you plan on doing any overclocking?

I would go with one of the KT333 boards. I would probably look in those 2 forums here to see if there appeared to be problems with either the Asus or MSI. I've had an Asus in the past but don't have a strong preference at this point. Good luck! :cool:
