I am looking at building a new desktop AMD/ATI. I cannot see the difference between these two boards:
MSI:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6813130600
ASUS Sabertooth:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6813131736
Is there a difference between the two that I am not seeing or is it just a brand difference?
I also see on newegg the ASUS board is available open box. Are open box motherboards worth the buy? I understand that they probably won't come with the box, but is the divers/cabling/manuals included?

I plan to use it with the AMD FX8150, ATI 6950, and 16Gb of G. Skill Ripjaws @ 1333.
Also, if anyone else has any suggestions to alternate boards, I would just like to keep the 990FX northbridge, but I'm open to any others that have comparable features.
Thanks in advance for the help.
