    Asus Crosshair V Formula or ASRock Fatal1ty 990FX Professional AM3+ 990FX

    Ok, Im down to these 2 board for my new build. I just dont know which one I want to go with, I like the better sound card in the Asus board, but I do like the double Nic in the Asrock. I dont use speakers but I do use a Sennheiser PC350 headset, which is like 10 Hz - 26,000 Hz. oh I love this headset.

    For music and gaming what you think? I can get either board for about the same one paying tax, the other not paying tax.

    Will be using
    Corsair Force 3 180g SSD
    GTX 470, will upgrade when 660 or 670's release I dont do SLI or Crossfire.

    What board ya think is would be best for Gaming, movies, music. BF3, MW3, EQ, MW2 etc.

    Well, if you check out my sig you'll find that I'm bias.
    In all honesty this ASUS Crosshair 5 Fornula board is the best board I ever owned.
    It's not a board for a noobie, If your going to go with a FX CPU then as far as I'm concerned it's the ONLY way to go !

    well I can get the Crosshair V formula for 179.99 when I get the FX-8120 for 179.99, so Im leaning more to the Asus. But I do like the double Nic, and with 30meg cable. Not sure if I would see a differance in pings or not with the double nic.

    Yes, it would be good, but I would encourage you to wait a little while. The next iteration of the FX line might be coming out soon if rumors are to be believed. You might go with that, or FX-8150 prices might go down on the new chip's release.
