How many video cards do you plan to use?

1 card: 970 chipset
2 cards: 990X chipset
3 cards: 990FX chipset

That's basically the difference between chipsets.

Now, pick a manufacturer:

Asus
Gigabyte
MSI
Asrock
Sapphire

I recommend ASUS, Gigabyte and MSI boards, but some people like Asrock, and I haven't heard anything really good about sapphire mobos.

My personal fav is Asus, but i have a nforce4 board from gigabyte that still works just great (released oct 2004!).

A decent asus 970 mobo will run you less than 100 bucks. Now that's value.
