    If I google that model number I get this board

    https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/H81M-P32.html

    Is that what you have?

    If so either one will work fine, PCIe is a standard, and its very rare that any PCIe card won't work in any PCIe board (really old boards with 1.0 slots have problems sometimes, also some DELL and HP oem boards).
