Im guessing that the first and second ones have USB 3.0 for to plug into your case. I'll probably go with the second one since I am on a budget, but I might bite the bullet and get the more pricey one. one question, what makes the first one special?

You want a 990 board dont settle for a 970 it is older tech it wont or will not be supported as long as the 990 will be and most of the 990 fx boards are around 130 bucks plus so its worth the money to start there if you get a 970 hmm your pretty much stranded after some time down the road compared to the 990fx board with updates and such....

That is correct 1 and 2 have internal plug for front panel USB 3 not the budget solution.
970 and 990 are the same family chipsets and were released at the same time, top of the line boards are 990FX which I would have recommended if you had FX8350.

There are many happy FX6300 users utilizing the 970chipset and board number 2 I linked to is one of the better ones.

Spend the extra money on the first link, EVO m5a99x, 6+2 power phase, quality build awesome for overclocking.

Don't really plan on doing overclocking...
