Opinion on a MOBO

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, since Zambezi came out today, I can finally plan my new build! I've narrowed it down between two motherboards:

Asus Crosshair V Formula - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131735

ASROCK Fatal1ty 990FX - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157267

So, which one do you guys think is better? I'm liking the ASrock for the dual LAN that i can combine to one logical port and the gold caps ,but i've heard they make crappy boards.

Sorry but gotta do it. If you haven't already bought a mobo. Why would you bother with amd right now? Overall performance is on Intel's side for sure. I could understand if you already had a board.
