id get the gigabyte. It is very good board. I have a UD5H WB, just got it in, if you can deal with the blue then its a very good board especially for that price. Haven't tried the others.

It should be noted that the Sabertooth does get a 5yr warranty...

...but I don't plan on keeping a board that long anyway. Other than that I find that when someone sees the Sabertooth, they either love the design or HATE it.

I went with the P8Z77V-PRO this morning from ASUS, along with the i7-3770K, pretty interested in seeing if the WIFI-GO! with DLNA features is really awesome, or just a gimmic. Not to mention There are a metric crap ton of fan headers on this board (don't quote me on this but I think 6, that includes CPU_FAN1 plus CPU_OPT, <3)

Yea, I like Asus, but the boards are kinda on the low side of Sata ports and USB. Using up all 5 Sata ports on my PC right now and still have additional devices I wana hook up

toss up is between

ASRock Z77 Professional ATX @ $220

Wild Card : GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UD5H-WB @ $200

I just got the Asus P8Z77- Pro. And I am loving it. I just didn't see any extra bonuses is for the saber tooth. Also I was able to grab a great deal at microcenter. They had the 2500K for $180+ if you bought the P8Z77- Pro you got $50 bucks off of the M.B.. so you should check to see if that deal is still valid. (If you live near a Microcenter.) Then sell the 2500k, or save it since it's such a great card.
