Your better off spending more on a better GPU then a better mobo...
Out of the two, go with the maximum out of those two... but why not a cheaper mobo?

Unless you need more than two x 16 PCI-E slots, I'd drop the supercomputer and go with the ASUS P7P55D-E Pro

I was thinking the supercomputer might have advantages in the future for connectivity , but I can find no comparisons of that model with the other 2 boards. I want the best performance as I can find in a MB.
