  2. now whats the difference with the chipsets?
  3. Best answer
    The 990FX is better if you want to do a SLI or Crossfire setup, it has support for more expansion slots(32 pcie lanes vs 16 of the 970), also it's the top of the line chipset from amd, so you'll find the best motherboard with that chipset.
    The 970 boards are fine for single card configuration and depending on the brand/model, it's a usually good budget board.
    I'd get the asrock extreme 3, since it's at 108$ after promo code.
