Or any better options to get some bang for my buck?

The 99X is a bit more of an enthusiast motherboard. Hence the position of the SATA slots and the 3 PCI-e slots.

For future compatability and expandability, I would recommend the M5A99X EVO R2.0 of the 2 you offered. It is the newest chipset, and will have a few more features. Additionally, if you intend to SLI it will support that, where as most 970 series chipsets will support crossfire but not SLI.
