Probably Asus in terms of initial QC, after that I doubt there is much difference. The Asus has a few more ports.

Both are poor overclokers due to its power limitations.

You should be able to overclock... I can't see where it specifically states you can unlock cores, but I thought all the newer ASUS boards could.

Not a problem if you don't have a cpu that has cores turned off.

When u have 12, its much better, but u have to pay little more, around $150

I found this one GIGABYTE GA-990XA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990X SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

8+2 phase VRM + DUALBIOS 3TB+ HDD SUPPORT (HYBRID EFI TECHNOLOGY)

was: $149.99 $139.99 now $129.99 after mail-in rebate card

Better than both and unlock the extra core...

Its decent CPU and very popular with people because the price and multi-core that u can overclock safely to 4.1 GHz and capitalize on the great deal with great performance.

Correct. More phase power is great for OC, the higher the number, the more stable and higher overclock.

So, if u don't OC, u are fine : ) Its a good board. U can OC as well, try little by little : )

Tell your dad that mobo is a center piece of the PC and CPU is the heart.

And the best and most enjoyable experience comes with mid end quality hardware.

U can say, that he would not buy a car without Air Condition and power windows and remote door locks : )

After all, there are mobos that cost well past $400!
