Happy Holidays All,

I'm picking up a new mobo this weekend but can't decide between these two:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
http://www.amazon.com/Gigabyte-LGA1155-CrossFireX-Mothe...

I plan on using the new mobo with
Core-i5 3570k
HD 7870
...if it makes any difference.

I cannot tell the difference between the two boards, except for the color. What am I missing? One has this site's approved award, but I cannot tell why. Although the base prices even out, Newegg high shipping charges to Hawaii which is why I tend to lean towards Amazon. Any advice is welcome. Thanks

Well at first glance the one priced at $114 .99 has an extra PCI-E slot. Looking at the specs they both have 4 sata 3gb slots but the more expensive one has 4 sata 6gb slots where at the cheaper one has only 2. The more expensive one also has 6 USB 3.0 slots and 2 USB 2.0 slots where as the other one has 4 usb 3.0 and 4 usb 2.0 Thats the main differences I can see. If there are other differences I'm sure someone else on here can add too this.
