Default AMD 770 Motherboard Help

I sold my Biostar Tforce 560 A2+ motherboard and have decided to stick with AMD due to a money issue (lack of it) I want to get a board with the new AMD 770 chipset. It's between that Biostar Tforce TA770 A2+ or the Gigabyte GA-MA770-DS3. The main reason for picking this chipset is future proofing, I want something that will support the new Phenoms (When AMD releases ones that OC good).

The Biostar is an awesome price $79.80 @ DC but Biostar's BIOS layouts are horrid.

The Gigabyte board is more expensive at $115.63, but the BIOS layout is a lot better.

I'm stuck on which one to get. I have searched for reviews and haven't really found anything good regarding both these boards.

Any help would be really appreciated as I have to get this PC built soon. Oh I will be pairing it with a 5000 BE.

I Bought that Biostar and with latest BIOS it's been phenomenal in terms of OCing my 5000 BE . Also, a very good BIOS modder by the name of Polygon at Rebels Haven has taken up the cause with this board and the Phenom and has made it better than it was imo. for the price, it's an excellent choice.
