If you don't intend on going SLI/Crossfire, there's nothing wrong with getting a 970 board. They're much cheaper.

The problem is that also means it's where they stick the bargain basement boards, so you need to make sure you don't get another exsplody one.

Go for ASrock, I haven't seen any complaints about them, and they have a lot of good boards for every price range.

Well I decided to go with the gigabyte 990fx ud3 cuz it has the newest chipset and it looks like it has some good overclocking potential.
