leaning with the MSI. Though the GIGABYTE is $10 cheaper. I think the GIGABYTE could be "voltage locked". what to do?

Snuckie would probably choose MSI because Gigabyte voltage is locked.

So MSI is better because Snuckie said so.

In terms of price and performance, this is probably the most comparable one:

The Gigabyte card is also larger, so that might cause some issues.
