x79 board suggestions.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Well after wanting change I have decided to upgrade my system. I will be picking up a 4930k through the retail edge program next week so I am looking for a decent motherboard. Lately, I have been stuck between the Asus Sabertooth or going all out and getting the Rampage IV Black Edition. I will only be reusing my storage devices, sound card, psu, etc. I already have a 290x sitting here and may possibly crossfire another down the road. I think the black edition may be a bit overkill for my needs yet I am still unsure. While I prefer Asus I am also open to any other suggestions.

I would definitely go for the rampage It will have more expansion for the future and will be easier to overclock with due to the exceptional power delivery. The color is also a factor if your case is windowed. Well worth the extra $$

When you can't decide, always pick overkill! RIVE BE gets my vote.
