This^_^.
+ USB 3.0., UEFI BIOS (maybe), cheaper DDR3 memory upgrade (DDR3 has better bandwidth), faster with AM3 CPU, AM3+ (upgrade later)

The only one I'd probably avoid is the ASUS M5A88-V EVO.
I'm still on the fence between the 97A-D3 Gig, and the ASUS M5A97.

Will hold out a while longer for me.
