hi guys im trying to put together my first build for gaming

im wondering whether or not to go for asrock 870 extreme3 because of its SATA 6gb/s and USB 3.0 future proofing?
or the Asus 790x evo which has everything that the asrock has except the sata 6gb/s and usb 3.0 or am i wrong? also heard asus board are more relieble in overclocking which i will do in the future and are better for unlocking cores but ive decided to go for phenom 955 than taking my chance at a 555 ot 560 unlocked all cores

i will be building my rig for gaming and school papers/research

what you guys think? which board will give me my best bang for buck for the next 3-5years

If you plan to use a single gpu then the gigabyte will be great. If you plan to ever cf then I would go with the asrock due to it having x8/x8 rather than the gigabytes x16/x4.
