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

-CF/SLI support

-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.
