Advice on mobo choice

I've managed to get a i5-750 setup for approximatively the same price as a AMD Phenom II X4 965 similar setup. The only big difference between both of those are the mobos. I would love to be pointed out toward the better one on these as I am pretty clueless on the subject.

GIGABYTE GA-790FXTA-UD5 AM3 AMD 790FX http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128415
or
GIGABYTE GA-P55A-UD4P LGA 1156 Intel P55 http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128409


Thanks

  1. great mobo...are the same....but intel is much better.GIGABYTE GA-P55A-UD4P LGA 1156 Intel P55
  2. What will be the main purpose of the build. For gaming, I would go AMD for the higher overclock and framerates.

    For video editing work, I would go Intel.
  3. Gaming all the way. From what I could read ( http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/272741-28-truth-phenom-updated ) both CPU's will carry my gaming flawlessly. So I decided Id choose based on the best Mobo I get could for each system.
  4. I'd say theres not much of a difference, but there are a few more boards that are possible a better buy, unless you really need 8 sata ports. Evga, MSI, and Gigabyte all have Mobo's in the 130-170 range with basically the same specs. I think the evga one is the LE or the SLI, and GD65 or GD80 for MSI both have outstanding reviews. im not sure if those have SLI support tho, but i hope this helps a bit
