I'm going to be picking up either of them so that I can fully overclock my 1090t. The M5A is much cheaper and matches my case but I'm worried about the x8 PCI-E slots..

I'm going to be running crossfire 6950 cards and I'm curious if only having x8 instead of x16 will impact my ability to overclock. Any help would be appreciated.

ASUS Crosshair V: $125
ASUS M5A99X EVO: $80

Which is better for my build?
