GIGABYTE GA-970A-UD3P < By far the better board the other is a thermal nightmare.

It has an 8+2 power phase design , and a much better thermal design.

ASUS M5A97 LE R2.0 < Is a very very poor board.

The only real difference between the two, in my opinion, is their phase design. The asus has 4+1 and the Gigabyte 8+2. Everything else is similar, though I'd say the cooling of VRMs is better on the Gigabyte as well. They both have 1 x16 and 1x4 PCI-e slots.

My vote goes to the Gigabyte, for potential overclocking capability with 8+2 design.

EDIT: Bolded, too. heh, Bb
