  1. Im deciding between these motherboards, which ones you think is the best?

    ASRock 990FX EXTREME4

    Gigabyte GA-890FXA-UD5

    Asus M5A97 EVO AMD AM3+ 970

    gigabyte ga-970-ud3

    ASUS Crosshair III Formula, AMD 790FX

    The only con i see about the asus is that its 6+2 power phase, but is that a huge difference from 8+2?
