I am looking to either one of these boards. What is the difference between the two? The only real difference I can see is the m5a99fx pro has dual pci-e x16 slots and the m5a99x evo runs sli x8. I have a gtx 670 at the moment and may sli in the future. Will I see any performance difference getting the 99fx pro over the evo?

Also, the m5a99fx pro is $30 more and will need to be specially ordered. I can get the m5a99x evo today. Is it worth the extra money and waiting?

Both boards are good and there will be no noticeable performance difference with them running SLI. Here showing single GTX680 card having average 1% difference in ver 3.0 at X8 and X16 speeds
I say get it today.
