EVGA Z75 VS GIGABYTE 990FX-UD3 FOR GAMING PLATFORM????

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I am in the process of starting my first build strictly with gaming in mind. I have decided to go with dual sli graphics cards. Should I go with the EVGA Z75 or the GIGABYTE 990FX-UD3? My main concern is the EVGA PCI E ports, one being 16x and the other 8x. While on the GIGABYTE UD3 it has dual 16x slots. Being AMD or Intel is not my concern, I just want to know when it comes down to it which board will give best performance and bang for the buck....... I do plan on going with the intel i5 2400s with the EVGA and going with the AMD 6core fx6300 with the GIGABYTE.

there will be no noticeable performance difference between the 8x and x16 speeds.
