I'm building a new computer but I'm not sure which of these two motherboards I should use.

I don't think I'm going to be using 4 graphics card, but the crosshair is $50 more.

Any thoughts?

Get the Crosshair III

its by far the best AM3 board ATM.........

only advantage that the MSI has is the quad-xfire but I don't thing you will be using 4 GPU's (major overkill).....

Well, I can tell you that my Crosshair III is good to look at? I've just got it sitting around waiting to be used for my new build that should be finished on Fri, when I get my 965 BE, but from everything I've read, I would go ahead and buy the Crosshair III over the GD70 since it's got some nice features, a nice layout, and I haven't used any MSI parts, but Asus has rock solid quality. The only thing the GD70 has is that quad CF, but come on, what average user will use that?
