I'll be getting this: i5 4690k, gtx g1 970, wd blue 1tb 7200, hyperx fury 8gb, xfx 550 80+ (ssd is coming later).

My dilemma is between these two motherboards. Can you suggest which one is better and why?

Dude the AsRock is a good board and in essence there is nothing wrong with it, but I would always recommend the gigabyte over the AsRock given that I`ve never had any trouble with any of my last 3 Gigabyte boards but the AsRock is cheaper I would say...

But given that the AsRock can handle Quad Sli and CF then I would say get the rock, but who dropos 2 690`s or 2 R9 295`s on a Z97 chipset anyway...

Go Gigabte!!

sorry to go off topic the answers above have given steer on which is better between both boards.

I would spend a little more and get the asrock z97 extreme4 as it has 12 power phases which is better for overclocking the 4690k for $15 more

also buy the MSI 970 it overclocks better than the gigabyte.
