gigabvte is usually my first pick, mainly because of that 2 oz inner copper layer that no other manufacturer has-makes for a really cool running machine. For ASUS, you could go with one of the pro series motherboards. They dont offer quite the performance though. Thats the curse with intel motherboards im afraid, they are pricey.

To me, Gigabyte motherboards are high quality made whereas Asus is all about the high performance.

Both gigabyte and ASUS make high quality and high performing, motherboards. I would trust either one. Gigabyte does have the 2 oz copper layer, which is nice especially for overclockers, but ASUS makes a high quality board and handles the heat using slightly bigger heat spreaders on the motherboard usually as well as others. the sabertooth motherboard is indeed nice, however, this bad boy offers same if not better performance in many areas, in fact it supports faster memory then the sabertooth, though it only has 2 sata 6 gb/s while the sabertooth has 4, though not a huge hit in my book, and its $40 cheaper.

I was looking at that yesterday and was unsure about it. I like the fact that asus has a fast boot when I can get online without my pc being fully on.

ya, my boards got that feature to. It is a nice feature, though I hate to admit-I rarely use it, but it is a nice feature. In all honesty, I don't think youll regret either board, their both excellent.

What bothers me about that board, is in crossfire that second x16 slot only runs at x4. If your only running a single video card, this isnt an issue, but if your wanting to crossfire, a board with at least x8 by x8 if not 16 by 16, is preferable for maximum performance. Other then that its a decent board.

I would have to say the Gigabyte motherboard Patriot suggested before is good but i have to say the Sabertooth looks cool :)
