Hello,I would like to build a system but i'm not sure on which motherboard to choose. It's either MSI Z68A-GD65 Gen 3 or Asus P8Z68-V.
They are around the same price. I do know of the differences in the feature but i would like to know which board is more reliable and stable. The MSI board comes with 5 year warranty and uses military class II and good capacitors. The Asus board on the other hand has 3 year warranty and based on what i know it has quite a few problems.
I need to make a choice but i'm unsure. Can anyone help provide me with some suggestion?

Thanks a lot.
Clay.
 
For a Z68 and a Sandy Bridge 'K' CPU the ASUS P8Z68-V or ASUS P8Z68-V PRO. Both the ASUS and MSI listed all have (3) year warranties. For the few bucks more I like the ASUS P8Z68-V PRO, and both ASUS now offer 'GEN3 switch' for SLI/CF.

To give you a good answer I need to know: Use, CPU, OC'ing, Monitor(s), etc...
