Talking Mobo

Hey everyone,
I currently looking for a motherboard for my system. I came across these two motherboards. I need help figure out which one is a better motherboard or if there is a better motherboard out there then these two. What does everyone think?

that 780i mobo is the same one I'm getting for my new build, its pretty much top of the line, other then the new 790i mobo and a few others that are much more expensive. But there would be no real point to get it unless you are going to go sli in the futur, same with the 680i mobo, if you aren't gonna be using sli get a cheaper one.
