Boards are not an issues with SB. Just dont cheap out and grab which ever one has the feature/warranty you like.

Just from looking feature wise these are identical boards.

Heatsinks on Asus may get in the way of larger CPU coolers but the side mount sata connections would be nice for cable management if you are in to that.

The Gigabyte doesnt have side mount sata so if you want a nice neat cable look you will have the cables coming up first.

before you decide on going with crossfire board really look into pro/cons of dual vs single GPUs.

Crossfire can provide excellent performance WHEN supported...properly...

Actually i'm still thinking about picking AMD or Intel If Bulldozer proves to be better than Sandy Bridge, then i'm going with AMD, and if Bulldozer is equal to SB, then i'll probably pick the cheapest one :3
