As title says, which one should I choose?

It will fit a FX 6300 (maybe a mild oc), 8GB DDR3 1600Mhz and a HD7850.. ah, and I dont plan to crossfire...

Thanks in advance :D

Overclock with the asrock 990fx extreme 3 is just terrible, but its cheap and reliable other than OC. Both the asus and gigabyte are great just check for the on sale.
But i would recomend the asus mobo.

If you're even considering the ASRock 990FX, then I would recommend as a comparison Gigabyte's GA990FX-UD3 instead of the 970A-UD3: it's still cheaper than the ASRock, has a better reputation, & has all of the 970's features plus eSATA ports, & faster slots (2 x16 and 2 x4 PCIe slots, 2 x1 slots, & 1 PCI).

Thank you for answers!

But here at Brazil, prices are beyond from this galaxy..

ASRock 990FX Extreme3 R$ 468,00 (U$ 209,0) + shipping cost;
ASUS M5A97 EVO R$ 476,00 (U$ 213,0) + shipping cost;
Gigabyte GA-970A-UD3P R$ 465,00 (U$ 208,0) + shipping cost.

The GA990FX-UD3 here cost R$ 620,00 (U$278,0) + shipping cost. Out of question =\

So, one of these 3 mb cited before is my goal...

Asus mobo is winning till now then :)

Then your pretty much set. Also check out the threads on overclocking your 7850, totally worth it.

As I said, I wont do overclock nor crossfire... worth spend more money just for a 990xx chipset?

I'm not an enthusiast.. I just like to play games with good quality :) 

There is too many difference in performance between a low-end and a mid-end mobo?

The 8+2 phases from gigabyte could be better than 6+2 from asus for a futher upgrade like a FX8xxx series?
