We are using the same core processor and memory, the chipsets vary, lets see what holds out...
A mixed bag, as it were, the Asus pulls a slight win in raw CPU performance, however, MSI pulls ahead in the MultiMedia category, boding well for HTPC applications (synthetically speaking of course).

And now for something completely different, I mean, a real world test appears to favor that of the older P5WDH, and not by just a little bit either. I would generally equate this to the sharing of memory on the MSI P6NGM, especially considering we are running Vista, which only taxes the systems resources more.
