asus m5a97 evo r2.0 vs gigabyte ga970xa ud3


Do I really need a 990x or 990fx?

gigabyte ga990xa ud3 97,- 8+2 power phase but bleu pcb
asus m5a97 evo r2.0 93,- Like the black pcb alot more and it has a 6+2 power phase.

I'm never going to use dual graphics because I'm going to us the amd 7870 xt and in crossfire it suffers from microstutter. Also I want to oc my 8320 to somewere between 4-4,5ghz(using the cm hyper 212 evo). I want a relieble and solid board that last me for atleast 2-3 years also want to upgrade to steamroller in the future.

optional boards:
asrock 990fx extreme 3 97,-
asus m5a99fx pro r2.0 130,- (does this have the same 6+2 power phase as the m5a97 evo r2.0?)
