+1. But I would go with the M5A97-EVO since it has USB 3 at mid-board.

I know where I'd put it... and it wouldn't be in a motherboard.. :P



Totally depends on what your looking to do.. Small buld? huge OC? what are you looking for..

Yes. The M5A97 only has USB 2.0 internal connectors. The Evo comes with 2x USB 3.0 internal connectors. For that reason I'd say that it's worth the extra few dollars.

how many devices do you have that use 3.0?

Its "nice" to have moving forward but $15-20 just for that is not worth it, since his case probably does not have usb 3.0 ports.

The 2 usb 3.0 ports on the back oft he mobo should be just fine for 99% of users imho.

If you plan on O C ing you might want to look at an ASUS Crosshair V
