I'd say both are top notch boards. Only real difference is one is atx and the other is matx. You can't go wrong with either.

i'd say you need to do some reading BEFORE buying anything if you don't know the difference between a matx and a atx mobo and plan to run a 4way SLI/Crossfire setup
no pun intended

overclock stability will be more CPU dependant than anything UNLESS you plan to do extreme overclokcing
