Motherboard Choices

Thread Starter 
I'm debating on purchasing the Asus Z77 sabertooth or the Asrock z77 of formula.

My current chipset is an i5 2500k, 16gb corsair vengeance ram, EVGA GTX 670 4GB card.

Should I wait for a benchmark on the Asrock z77 oc formula or just go ahead and get the Asus sabertooth board?

Well the sabertooth looks like a very solid board, but one question, what's wrong with your current motherboard?

Are they USB 3.0 or 2.0

My gigabytes 3.0's didn't work and all i needed was the USB 3.0 drivers.

The ones that work are 3.0 but the 2.0 don't work. I've updated bios and drivers and pretty much everything.
