both are high end mobo's, but the power phase design,O.C capability of the crosshair V(it's ROG limited edition) is better but the formula-Z is cheaper and would be worth the price.
For a 990fx mobo the formula-X would be enough, don't get something higher than that. try to invest more for the gpu

They are the same board. One is sold by Amazon and the other by Hot Deals 4 Less.

I am not sure why you are going with such a high end board if you don't plan on overclocking. You should pickup a ASRock 990FX Extreme3, it comes with 8GB of ram as well from Newegg.

What exactly is your intended use for this build? You are going with an entry level card with a high end motherboard, cpu, and cpu cooler. ASRock 990FX Extreme9 would still be a better value than these boards even if you do plan on overclocking.

And you think investing an additional $100 in the board would provide better gaming performance than using the $100 for a better GPU? What is your budget for this build and what components do you already own?

I agree, i'm from india nad have the same card.
do one thing buddy, give a add on olx or quiker for sale of ur graphics card and get a a better gpu like the hd7870/gtx760(will take time to launch in india).
For the mobo,why are getting such a costlier mobo,at cheaper price u can get a Z87 motherboard and a haswell cpu like i5-4670k(intel's 4th gen. processor) or a ivy bridge processor(i5-3570k) and a z77 motherboard(3rd gen.).
if u like to go with the fx8350, then buy a cheaper board with good O.C capability like the msi 990fx/gigabyte 990fx/asus 990fx board and get a better gpu, which would be worth the price :) 
which city do u live in?
U will get better performance than fx8350

iam from hyderabad . and i already have fx-8350. ya even i wud like to buy a graphic card shud see wats gonna happen. i will post an add but ppl just dont buy these graphic cards. they always want something cheaper here whoever is comin to olx and ppl who wanna buy this cards will directly get it from the shop instead of a 2nd hand card . they always think there is some problem thats the reason we are selling
June 25, 2013 9:43:19 AM

and i have a doubt doesnt this mobo have good O.C capabitlity ?? i mean its costlier so i thought the more its costly the more over clocking capability and i feel the mobo will not get heat like the present one which iam using ( asus m5A97 LE R 2.0)

Forget the motherboard and buy a new GPU.

ur mobo is fine and u have the best cpu from amd i.e., fx8350,right?
Bro i would recommend u to get something like hd7870XT or wait for gtx760 to launch in india :) 
and aftermarket cpu cooler like cooler master hyper 212+ and keep ur cpu cool and get the best performance, it will also help u to do much O.C in future :) 
i will provide u the link of gtx760 if i find it(in india)

nope, the gigabyte one which i listed is better because it has better cooling and better O.C performance than any of the others.

i know, but i think that he can extend 9$ for the better one.
However, i think we should stop and let him decide :) 
June 25, 2013 12:54:42 PM

i can buy 250 - 260$ no problem but which one shud i buy gigabyte version or evga or asus what
June 25, 2013 12:57:16 PM

ya goin with the gigabyte one :)  the next task is to sell the present graphic card and power supply n with that money shud get a 700 watt power supply as the new graphic card need 550 watts power supply minimum and now i have only 450 .

June 26, 2013 11:01:56 PM

a 600W would be enough.
I'd say go for a corsair CX600W or if u plan to do SLI in future then get a 650-700W psu.
Best of luck..:)
