Which one would be better, or are they about even?
Open to suggestions that are around the same price range.
The 990FX chipset/M5A99FX will give you
-a bit better OC-ability
-2 3Gb/s SATA Slots
-one more IEEE 1394 port
If they're similary priced, definetly go with 99FX.
Would go with the M5A99FX. SLI/Xfire support(dual PCI-E 16x) and better overclocking headroom.
