I just bought the gigabyte 970a ds3p for 59.75 and idk why i expected anything from this motherboard, call me an idiot, i deserve it. Apparently my ram is the corsair xms3 8gb,2x4 1600mhz and this motherboard can only give 1.5v and i need 1.65v. So I would like to know which motherboard between the Asus 85x vpro and the aAsus 88x pro is better, not just comparing the prices but the performance too and which can run my memory and be good for my evga gtx 770 if that matters at all. And my case i believe is about a small size or mid tower, it's the antec sonata III it's black and not to big, so will it fit in this? Please and thank you.

Also, I'll be buying them from amazon if that matters.

computer specs
corsair cx750 power supply
amd fx8350 processor
evga gtx 770 gpu
current terrible mobo is gigabyte 970ads3p
my hard drive is pretty old, but still working fine. Its 596gb and an hdd.
Hyper 212 evo, I'll be returning this to buy the new mobo.
24" led Samsung monitor
corsair xms3 1600mhz 2x4 8gb ddr3 memory.

Niether of them have the right Socket. You need the AM3+ Socket not FM2 / FM2+

How does the Asus m5a99fx pro r2.0 am3+ compare and is it better than my current one and how is the price and performance of it. And what would you recommend for a new motherboard?

i would recomend that, it was going to be used in my build but then I had a budget increase for the i5.
