#2 is 890FX and not 890GX, supports 16x-16x CFX, has 6+2 VRM as opposed to 8+2 (however it is not a 4+1 split into 8+2, it is true 6+2)

Since the VRM issue isn't that important (both will be safely capable of 125W CPUs) let me simplify it for you
#2: 890FX chipset
890FX chipset is higher end and supports more PCI-E lanes
So you can run CrossfireX with two cards and get the full 16 lanes per card rather than 8 (split x16), though x16 vs x8 isn't really a huge bottleneck anyhow. You can also run 3 or 4 cards in tri or quadfire in split x16-x8-x8 or x8-x8-x8-x8.
The 890FX does not include integrated graphics, but I doubt you need that anyway.

So you are going for the AMD X6 ?! Nice choice!
What happened to "my" Gigabyte mobo ?!
Good luck with the AMD build and welcome to the AMD community
Be wise with the mobo get one with proper VRM ,no matter the brand.

Hybrid Crossfire is pretty useless anyway... only works with low end GPUs to integrated and doesn't really do much for performance since with such low end cards you wouldn't be gaming anyway

The onboard gpu is automatically disabled when you have anything better than ~a 4850 installed. At least that was the case with the board in my sig using a 5770. I'm not sure why they even bothered with that hybrid crossfire feature on higher end boards.

Wrong customer target from AMD.
