there is no difference in the two boards, the GA-x58- ud5 is a first run of the board and the GA-x58A-UD5 is the second run .
the only difference that is really there is in the bios or a cap they had problems with. so they changed it . and done a reversion of the same board. and made the second revierison of the board say A in it. other then that there not really much of a diffence. I checked Gigabytes web site and only found the GA-X58A-UD5 (rev. 2.0)
now there is a GA-EX58-UD5 board . but its not what you were asking about .

hope this helps, good luck

As a rule, try and get the latest product revision, no matter what it is.
