the MSI does have a better chipset but on the other hand gigabyte has a much better warranty (personally i have a UD3 not digital power and a 6300 and im very happy with it)

Is a big difference in performance betwen the 970 and the 990 chipset?
And other thing, I watch a video from neweeg, that they said that the msi pci-e one runs at x16 and the other at x8. is that true? sorry for my spelling, I´m not used to write in inglish

Suppose the 990 performs better. 970 is cheaper. 990 more likely to support future chips. The official MSI site says 2x PCI-E 2.0 at 16x. here http://ca.msi.com/product/mb/990FXA-GD65.html#/?div=Det...

Ok man, So i would buy the msi, becouse of the two pci-e (in the future SLI with gtx 660OC or 760OC) and to get a better OC in the processor, thanks to all who gave me their opinion and info!
