Need comparison Help.

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
