The second one is easier to run SLI, if that's what you want.

Get this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128301

The second one has SLI support. So if u plan on getting 2 vid cards then choose the second one. If u will run only 1 vid card there is not much difference. But I'd still get the second one, just in case u want SLI someday.

Second. The DFI Lanparty UT NF4 is the best overclocking board. Don't get gigabyte, they are stable but featureless....I would know
