Whats up everyone? been out of the loop for awhile, I have been waiting to upgrade my mobo for the new 900 series boards are out I am not sure what asus board to go with I was thinking about the cross-hair V or the sabertooth. Is there any benefit to the crosshair over the sabertooth, worth the extra cash? overall all the reviews I have read seem that both boards people have been satisfied with them. I will not be running nvidia cards only ati in a crossfire maybe later down the road a tri fire. I want the board with the good oc capabilities. Thanks for the help

GA-990FXA-UD3/5 or the Sabertooth.
You can't go wrong with either of them.

It won't really improve performance.
Basically the whole point of getting 9xx series chipset motherboards is official Bulldozer support.

UEFI has a pretty GUI.
That's the major difference.

Crosshair V and the Sabertooth use the same chipset.
The difference is negligible for most people.
ROG specific features and extra PCI-E slots.

To each their own I suppose.
It's a pretty nice upgrade for sure.
