Well that latter link may not be ASUS's fault. The English in that error screen is terrible so it's not likely an official ASUS bios or isntaller program and indeed it seems was downloaded from a third party site. If you don't have a problem, don't flash a BIOS and if you do need to upgrade get the BIOS from the manufacturers site or you're on your own.

The first thread is about an open box unit. Seriously if someone returned it it probably had problems so why would you be surprised. Just return it where it was bought and remember caveat emptor.

The MSI is a good card but I have heard both and the ASUS is quieter, though depending on the system the difference may be unnoticeable.
