Hey fellas, doing a new build for my nephew. I'm kinda confused on these two boards. If i'm correct the pro does not support raid and the evo supports x16,x16. This is my first Amd build but it is what he wants. I've never had a problem with asus and would like to stay with them.. I am open to suggestions though. here is the build Case coolermaster haf 922 GPU Asus HD7870 dc2 CPU AmD 4300 Cooler 212 Evo Ram CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800 PSU Seasonic x650 Memory is still up in the air.. Any suggestions or changes yall feel is best just let me know... Thanks!!!

Of the 2 I'd go with the Pro, newer, AM3+ vs AM3
so would i need to get a raid card then? I was planning on setting up the boot drive in raid for him... It is no big deal though.. Thanks for your reply
Didn't see any drives listed, if thinking two platter drives in RAID, then might go with a SSD instead, would have more speed for the OS and Apps, then have a platter for data
