Asus p8p67 (vanilla) or p67 Sabertooth or MSI P67A-GD65

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I am going to be rebuilding my PC with a new i5 2500K CPU. I live close to a micro-center and the only asus p67 board they have in stock is the vanilla p8p67 b3. They have it for $160. They also have the sabertooth for $220 and the MSI for $185

For the record if they had the PRO or the deluxe ASUS I wouldn't be asking this question.

Should I buy the vanilla p8p67 or spend the extra money on the higher end boards? I have SLI now but can live with a mobo that can't run sli/crossfire.

What will I really gain if i spend more to purchase the MSI or Sabertooth over the vanilla ASUS?

It's been awhile since I built a PC so any info you can provide will be accepted gratefully!

Sabertooth: too much gimmicky stuff

P8P67: iirc, no SLI support on the vanilla

GD65: just right Awesome board, i used to own a GD55 (GD65 is the same PCB). Good stuff.
