I wouldn't go for the Sabertooth if you want SLI.
The spacing isn't very good for it.



As you can see, the bottom card would be over your usb, audio and front panel headers. (Assuming you have dual height cards.) Possible but not preferable.

You can still sli on the sabertooth p67 but it does not have the best placement for the pci express 2.0 slots. Other than that, the saber is awesome, its tuf and also has a lot of the same features, also it has that thermal armor and it keeps stuff much cooler.

I went through this exact line of questioning myself and ultimately decided on the Gigabyte P67-UD4 (bought it and my 2500k from Microcenter). So far I absolutely love the Gigabyte board. I'm sure you can't go wrong with either choice, but I'd recommend going with the Pro instead of the Deluxe if you buy the Asus.

go for the p8p67 pro or check the table I posted on the first page to determine what you need in terms of features.

Actually the "thermal armor" bullcrap has been proven to actually increase temperatures when not outfitted with the optional fan (which isn't uncluded).

Get the p8p67pro unless you do extreme oc stuff it will do everything you need and then some for a lot more affordable then to pay for useless plastic shroud that is a dust collector anyways... But if you have the $$$ your choice I wouls get more ram or a better GPU with the $$$ you will save.. Bought a ROG board once (commando) and never used half the features...
