That board retails for way more and I'm sure you would have to add a ton of cash to switch to it. It's meant for LN2/Dice or other extreme cooling methods. It's not much of a 24/7 usage board. Check out the I/O panel and you will see it has barely no connectivity or extra features. It's a no gimmick overclocking board, and unless you're planning to use extreme cooling methods it is absolutely not worth using in a daily rig.

I accept your suggestions, Thanks

So what about GA-X58A-UD5 instead of GA-X58-UD5?

Its a revision of the board...

Everything depends on how much, if anything, they'll want you to pay for the swap.

Apart for the price difference for the swap, is the GA-EX58A-UD5 Rev2 A good card?

It's a good board, go for it. I'd say the extra money is worth it considering now you will get SATA 6gbps and USB 3.0, plus a better board overall.

It's a good board, just no SATA 6gbps or USB 3.0. That's not really relevant now though, you can always buy a cheap addon card to get those features anyway.
