Those are all great boards. I would also include the MSI 790FX-G70 as an option too. MSI 790GX and 790FX are leaps and bounds better than previous series of high end products. It is also a solid board with a number of great options. All those boards are DDR3 which means you will need to buy new RAM. Out of the three, I would get the Gigabyte for most bang for you buck.
My insight would be you should be prepared for a OS reinstall when you change the mobo. Too many things about the system will change for the OS to adapt to it.
