I am having a hard time choosing what motherboard I want to upgrade to. Please help me decide on which would be best for me.
This is one hell of a tough choice.

#1: GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 ATX AMD Motherboard

#2: ASUS M5A99FX PRO R2.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

#3: ASUS SABERTOOTH 990FX R2.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

#4 ASUS Crosshair V Formula-Z

I mainly play games on my system but I also do some photo and video editing, though nothing major.

The Sabertooth is pretty much the max I am willing to spend on a motherboard.
I know The Sabertooth is a great board but its ram speed is limited to 1866 (supported).
The GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 appears to be a solid board for the price and has everything I would need.
And the ASUS M5A99FX PRO R2.0 has the better ram speed support and a few extras that don't really sway me one way or another.
Lastly the Crosshair V Formula is outside of my budget but is one hell of a board.

I would go with #2. Personally I have had better luck with Asus than Gigabyte.

I wound up getting the Sabertooth. It seems to be by best option for what I need.
