Replacing my Gigabyte UD4

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Well, I bought a Gigabyte UD4 in January, and clearly it's a re-called one. I just got off the phone with Newegg, so I'll be sending it back shortly. Anyways, I'm not sure if I want to stay with the UD4, or even Gigabyte for that matter. I'm looking at possibly switching over to Asus' Sabertooth.

What would you do?

I'm looking for any input. My budget is around $250. I don't plan on pushing my system to the max, or anything like that. I want to switch to Asus' motherboards because they same more user-friendly, and have a few more features.

I'm really just at a tossup between the Sabertooth, Deluxe, or Pro.

Were you having problems with the UD4? I'm also trying to decide between the UD4 and Sabertooth and I'm curious why you're considering switching.

I haven't had any real issues, outside of the realtek audio. Which isn't anything major. I just think Asus' bios and overclocking methods are more user-friendly. I also like the looks of the Sabertooth more (Stupid reason, but whatever).
