Hello guys, I'm going to build a new PC and have some problems with the choice of MB.
I was wondering is ASROCK fatal1ty worth it the extra $.
The full part list is here.

990fx is better but if you were looking at gigabyte why not there 990fx ud3??
and not saying that asrock is bad seeing I got 2 of them and alls good but the one thing with thr killer boards is that darn quailcom lan . boards with this item never make my to buy list due to it seems too proprietary and I need something that's well supported with most all OS .. so I prefer to stick with realtek or intel lans [opinion] ... but if you are only going to run windows it should not be an issue ,I guess
also the thing about quailcom on things we at work nicknamed them snitch/tateltail units so do I want somebody's device that's known for that on my computer?? [opinion]

I'm usually using external LAN card just for sure(electricity problems). I also want to be able to upgrade to 8 core AMD cpu after a couple years and will I be able to OC 8 core CPU on the ASRock MB?

One last question. The ram I was going to use is g.skill sniper 1866 but in the ASRock website in the supported memory list i can see only g.skill 1800/1600. Is this a problem?
