Well, the Nvidia nForce 570 SLI chipset is a proven, tried, and true chipset. It is getting on with age, though, and it does have its share of quirks.

The AMD 770 chipset is relatively new, but has received good reviews from what I've read (All the 770 chipset boards on Newegg have received 75 - 90% 4/5 star ratings).
