    Question Asus A8N-VM CSM or MSI RS482M4-ILD

    Since I've had to RMA my Asus board due to the integrated graphics being faulty, I am undecided whether to replace it with the same as I've been reading up on various overheating and performance issues. Or, should I get the ATI based MSI equivalent board?

    My mate has just built a PC with the MSI board and he loves it, no problems to report.

    The Onboard graphics aren't amazing, but he managed to get FEAR running.

    It's only going to be used for running MCE2005, so as long as the integrated graphics are up to the flashy effects in the interface that'll do.

    Edit: ordered one of these as its seems to come with its TV-out module unlike the Asus. The ATI should also output csync so with PowerStrip I should be able to link the VGA to SCART for a lovely RGB picture.
