The GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 is cheaper but good, ASUS Sabertooth 990FX is better but a little expensive.

The ram should work on both boards. :)

For the gigabyte motherboard, many verified owners claimed that their fx cpus worked right away without flashing bios.

For the sabertooth, several verified owners said they had to flash bios first.

You should read the reviews on newegg by verified owners to help you get a better idea of the situation

AN AM3+ socket is req. to run a fx cpu. If you're not gonna crossfire/SLI then a 970 chipset should work fine, they got similar Overclocking capabilities.
ASRock 970 EXTREME3 & Asus M5A97 evo are good choices.
For crossfire/SLI a 990FX board is recommended.
