MSI 990XA-GD55 AM3+ AMD 990X SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
ASUS M5A97 R2.0 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

They both cost the same and I was wondering which is more reliable and worth most for the money etc and also which one is easier to flash the BIOS on as I will be installing a Vishera chip(FX 6300)

It also states that the MSI board is 9.6" wide which is .6" wider than the Asus Mobo, How does that affect the standoffs with my case? I have a Rosewill Challanger Case

Get the MSI with 990x chip. Its better than 970 chip. ALso MSI will be easy for bios update.

Whatbout the weird 12 by 9.6 factor. Will the stand offs still be normal?
