ASUS SABERTOOTH X79 or ASUS P9X79 DELUXE

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
So with my Intel DX79SR being a dud and having known USB 3.0 issues I have been told by an Intel tech support person that they will be refunding me for the board.

I now need to choose a new LGA 2011 Quad Channel Memory board. I was thinking about the ones in the subject. What do you guys think? Any other options or recommendations?

Either good option.

Also consider http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128562&nm_mc=OTC-pr1c3grabb3r&cm_mmc=OTC-pr1c3grabb3r-_-Motherboards+-+Intel-_-GIGABYTE-_-13128562

or

Both Pretty nice boards. Good power delivery and look good as well.

I'll look into the Gigabyte board, I wouldn't care about the ASRock since its more of a "budget" board.

Pick one with the features you're going to use, both X79 boards are excellent.

Also I meant the P9X79 PRO, and I think that's the one I am going to go with.

Although there really isn't a REAL difference between the Pro and Deluxe except price.

Wow, that is an awesome looking board, but I can't justify almost $500 on a mobo!!
