was considering the
GIGABYTE GA-970A-D3 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
(just because of availability in my area, I'm in Australia btw)
what is the difference between the D3 and the UD3? is it really worth trying to find the UD3?
also, can't find the 900XA in my local stores, the most im willing to spend (if i don't go for the 970A)
Gigabyte GA-990FXA-D3 4XDDR3 4XPCI-EX16 RAID SATA3 USB3 ATX
GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
I guess what I'm asking here is, what does the 'U' mean (ie, UD3 vs D3)
and is the 990FXA worth the extra $30-50 on top of the 970A?
yer think I'm feeling the GA-990FXA-UD3 because its *meant* to be more durable (I want my computer to last at least 5 years before any upgrades).
Plus the 990FXA looks to be a more satisfying MB in terms of sockets etc (soz for any bad terminology, MBs is not my forté)
found it (at msy for those reading from Australia) for AU$157
