Gigabyte GA-970A-UD3 vs. ASRock 970 Extreme3 R2.0 vs. MSI 970A-G46

So what do you guys think about these three mobos for an FX 8320 cpu?

In my build thread, someone recommended the asrock over the msi due to reliability issues but I want to throw in the gigabyte option too to see what you guys think I should get.

  1. I prefer you to get non of these and get a 990FX based motherboards which are more reliable than these three... I suggest you to get one from these two-
    1. ASUS M5A99FX PRO R2.0
    2. Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3

    both are good motherboards for a FX 8320 CPU...

    It will be a clear win for ASROCCK since it have better over clocking technology(if you prefer). But in fair decision both are good mobo's. Any of it will do well but the choice it up to you. :D
  3. Thanks for the suggestions guys.

    The 990fx based motherboards are a bit out of my budget. I was looking to get a mobo for around ~$70-75 to fit in my budget which is the only reason why I was considering the 970 mobos.

    Any suggestions in that price range?
  4. Just $10 more you can get ASUS M5A97 R2.0 which I think is affordable by you... If not then I prefer to get the Gigabyte GA-970A-UD3... As per me gigabyte is better than the three options you gave...
