ASUS M4A78 Plus 79.99 (69.99 after MIR)
GIGABYTE GA-MA785G-UD3 89.99

Anyone who has used either or both, pros? cons?

The Asus has 2x 16x pci-e, and 3 regular pci, but lacks the core unlock capability of the Gigabyte (which has 1 16x pci-e, and 1 4x pci-e) Decisions decisions...

I plan to possibly crossfire with another 4850 in the future, if I don't pick up a 5xxx series card instead

The question is, will you be unlocking? If yes, then Gigabyte, if no, then Asus. All in all, its your choice, and also depends on what you want to do.

Good luck!
