Hello again BC!

I am looking to build a computer for my friend.

This wishlist at NewEgg shows what I have selected so far.

I was wondering though: Which of those two motherboards would be better with that case and for what reasons?

Would I be able to use all of the USB ports on both front and back of the case?

We can not see your wish list. You will have to copy and paste the URL to the newegg page that displays the mother boards you are looking at.

Sorry: thought you could with a public wishlist

It's these two boards:

Gigabyte
MSI

With this case

They are the same, as in, they are both ATX motherboards. Furthermore, those two motherboards are ALMOST exactly alike, except the gigabyte board has more USB ports, and it is 20$ cheaper. Either one would work in the case you selected, in regardds to answering your question, but to give you my opinion, pick the gigabyte board.

I would definitely get the Gigabyte board because of their reliability.

Thanks!

I was thinking the same thing; just wanted to ask anyway
