Hard decision. Both motherboards are fairly matched Specwise. However I would have to go with Asus as they are usually very stable motherboards and alow for great overclocks.

I use asus alot so I'm a little bias in my recommendation. Try looking for reviews on line and see how far the FSB goes on each board. Also, since it looks like you're going single GPU on your mobos, the RD580 is a GREAT OCer. My A8R32-MVP Deluxe got me another 100Mhz on my OC! The CFX-3200 Enterprise has is a great board also and is pretty cheap on newegg right now.

*EDIT* Take the cheap part back. I forgot that was just for black friday.

well i did go for the epox motherboard, i have one now and its fantastic. TONS of overclocking features. And this one will do over 300mhz fsb. Im not going crossfire, as im an nvidia fan boy and ordered a xfx 7900GT along with the mobo. Thanks for the help tho guys!
