Both P35s...

They're very similar, the MSI does have an extra x16 slot though...

Hmm...unless you need the extra x16 slot, I'd go with the Gigabyte, simply out of looking at the reviews.

The Neo2 has much better Chipset and Southbridge cooling than the Gigabyte which doesn't even have heatpipes.

MSIs are tough, and IMO, it's better than the Gigabyte.

Erm, no. Those are extreme series. Some people don't need to waste.

Yep. The P35 has the hatpipes, but not the southbridge, although...southbridges don't get hot that much.

Yeah, you're right. The Neo2 has better north bridge cooling.

If you're not going to OC, get the GB, if you are then get the Neo2. Simple as that.
