I can't make up my mind between the Maximus vi hero http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131989
and the Asrock extreme6 with or without ac http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157382
Reccomendations of mobos around 190- 200 dollars
Msi Z87 Mpower: Nice mobo with alot of feutures, even bluetooth and Wlan and overclockability.
Asus maximus VI Hero: Very nice board, but no wifi and bluetooth.
Asus Z87 Pro: Nice board with bluetooth and Wlan.
Msi Z87-GD65 Gaming: Nice motherboard with nice feutures. unfortunatly no wifi or bluetooth, but a decent board.
Msi Z87-G45 Gaming: Also a decent board, but cheaper, it has a bit less feutures as its brother the GD65.
yeah very doubt full of MSI, could you reccomend any gigabyte asrock or asus mobos, or pick one out of the two i listed
i personaly mostly prefer Asus or Msi boards on the intel Z87 platform, so the Asus Z87 pro or the maximus Hero for you then ☺
How many msi mobos have you had?
i have an old Msi-945PL NEO €50 or so that time.., its in my old rig, that my parrents also used for a while its arround 9 years old, and still working great i have to say, its allmost older then me lol :D
Long story short i never had issues with msi "intel" boards, as long as you buy a decent one. on AMD AM3+ the msi line of boards just suck, same as the Gigabytes by the way.
Now i personaly have an Asus board in my new rig (AMD), and thats also fine. If you have the best feelings with Asus i would just say go with Asus, you cant go wrong with an Asus. With msi its just you get what you pay for, cheap boards are crap, semi/higher end boards are great. But thats basicly for all brands. i personaly allways look at specs and do alot of research, and reading user reviews. to see which boards have a lot of issues, and which dont.
