Man I have some thinking to do. The Aorus Master is on sale for $10 more than the normal price of the Ultra or 15 over its current price at Newegg, until next Thursday. That's tempting for the better VRM and apparently according to one reviewer the dip switches for the BIOS make the dual BIOS easier to work with (I've never used dual so no idea). I don't really care about the Sabre DAC on the sound unless I end up going with powered monitors or keeping my current speaker config for a while............. Been thinking of downsizing from an old 5.1 receiver/speaker setup to something else and some of the computer specific stuff is connected by USB which would bypass any onboard sound.
