i am getting fx 6300 and it's great for overclocking so what is the best budget motherboard for overclocking it high
ASUS M5A97 R2.0
or
MSI 990XA-GD55 (or the more expensive MSI 990FXA-GD65 )
what is the diffrence in the two msi mobos as the gd65 one is a little bit expensive
feel free to recommend better choice but in the same budget

This is the board I would get from Asus http://pcpartpicker.com/part/asus-motherboard-m5a99xevo... It is comparable to the MSI 990XA.
There is very little difference between the two MSI boards almost identically equipped. Even the FX board does not do two card SLI and CF at X16/X16. Between them I would tahe the 990XA GD55.
