    Hi everyone.
    I'm considering getting a complete new build and I'm a fan of amd so I'm going to get a 990 chipset with a 1090t maybe to wait for piledriver.
    Here's the confusion.
    Crosshair V Formula is a fanstic option I know but the price in Shanghai is just rediculous: the retailers have only C5F without thunderbolt and it sells at the price of with thunderbolt. I mean I'm not in a tight buget but I need my money to be spent resonable. So I move my sight to Asrock Fatal1ty 990FX Professional. I made a conparsion between(I know sabertooth is also a great option but I just enjoy the theme of red and black):Fatal1ty has more power supply while C5F gets quality and Fatal1ty seems to have more accessories. And the last thing I care is audio: C5F gets X-Fi 2 which in face seems to be an ALC889 while Fatal1ty gets ALC892, so what's the difference? Is that ALC chips in later vision means a better product?
    Sorry for my mistakes in English:)
