Back in the day, I'd take the ASUS everytime. Not anymore. In fact some of the ASUS boards are rather crappy.
True dat, owned a Gigabyte 790GX mobo since Windows 7 launched, and hasn't had one bit of trouble yet, and I have the same CPU as the OP has, so one can probably bet that the 890GX would be just as good of a mobo, if not better. Probably the same overclockability, and features, and what not.
