Both will be about the same since they are both the same DDR version and amount of ram not that with 1.5 gb you ever run out. The MSI is a little faster however as you can see it'll take up a lot of room. Because of that I would go with the Asus.

As for breaking your board you'd have to be very careful and screw it down at every slot but it probably wouldn't damage it. Don't hold me to that though.

For that price why not go with the latest technology and lower temps to boot.> Newegg.com - Computer Hardware, Video Cards & Video Devices, Desktop Graphics Cards, EVGA, GeForce GTX 600 series, GeForce GTX 670

Go with one of the three $400-420 versions.

Needs less wattage than my GTX 460 let alone 500 series.
Backward compatible to PCI 2.0 only needs one slot to run in and takes up two slot spaces.

Probably the heatsink.

The cards both have a 3yr warranty, and the ASUS is about $5 cheaper than the MSI... I dont think space will be too much of a problem, so I'd probably choose the MSI (it looks cooler ). Has anyone used these cards on their own PC? Id like to know of their exeperiences and so on (any features that you liked/disliked etc.)

First off you are still talking about the wrong card the ASUS is clearly a bigger card and dimensions The MSI card is about a 1-1/2 inches smaller all the way around

Well the Msi will come with Afterburner program to overclock which is a tunning program with voltage tweeks as well

I have a MSI board and card ussually they work out the same way and probally be slightly faster then the asus pre overclocked and you can push it more

I have a MSI Nvidia GTX460 my GPU looks identical to that picture and +1 for the afterburner.
I still remember when I also had to make a decision between the ASUS and the MSI wasn't easy.
Went for the MSI as it had a gold rating compared to other 460's in the PcFormat mag when I bought it a year ago.
I still say you cant go wrong with either of those cards IMO.
