I am in the market to get a new AM3 platform and I am going to making it "future proof" so it will last a few years. So which mother board should I get I am stuck between the ASUSCrosshair IV Formula/Gigabyte 790FXTA-UD5. Both have usb 3.0 and SATA3 compatibility. The price is about the same for each so I really don't know which one to go with and I was hoping some of you can give me some input to help me decide.

Hi newcomer and welcome to the Tom's hardware forum.
1- In this case, the best option is the Crosshair IV because the 790FXTA-UD5 have a old chipset now.
2- U also can go with the Gigabyte 890FXA-UD5 that is around $180 and have a similar performance that the Crosshair IV.
