I've decide I'm going to get a Bulldozer chip when it comes out, so I'm planning on getting a 990fx / AM3+ socket mobo. I've narrowed down my choices to the ASUS Sabretooth, the ASUS Crosshair V Formula (Thunderbolt), the Gigabyte GA-990 (whichever revision is the best), or a 990frx MSI/Biostar motherboard. Which one should I choose? (I'm using it for gaming and video-editing mostly.)

I just picked up a Crosshair V Formula last night, and couldn't be happier.

That said, I was torn between the Sabretooth and the Crosshair V. In the end I went with the Extra USB 3.0 ports and the X-Fi Audio chip.

I'd go for the Asus Sabertooth & you can always buy a third party add in card for audio. Do not forget to buy a retail boxed operating system so you save the money when you upgrade to another motherboard. OEM operating systems can only be used on the original mainboard that you installed it on to.
