The UD5 is a higher end board than the UD3H. You get more PCIe x16 slots.

Hello I found this motherboard today when I was just browsing for a 'bang for buck' AM3 board for a future upgrade, how many graphics cards do you plan on using?

this is a Crossfire board and has 2 PCI E x16 slots(both work at x16 in dual mode) Gigabyte GA-MA790FXT-UD5P 790FX, this is a good UK online site but if your from somewhere else you should be able to find it.
