I have an i7 wich uses the integrated GPU. I am not so happy about this compared to the nVidea external GPU I use with an AMD CPU.

Check carefully the list to find out if you can live with the current status of Intel KMS if you have to use it.

I would not consider MSI as they are the people who once delivered motherboards with a short life time.

Asus was also my first choice for the motherboard.
