    My AsRock Xtreme I think is dieing/dead. Would the Sabertooth be a good replacement? Any other suggestions in that price range ($200ish).


    Thanks

    I had the P55 Sabertooth that launched before they did a X58 and I liked it alot. Very solid board, booted faster than anything else I've had, and a nice BIOS layout.

    I don't think I've ever owned a Gigabyte board, looking at GA-X58A-UD3R now as well.

    I'm very happy with my Sabertooth X58, it supports USB3.0 and SATA600 and it's very easy to overclock. Points of attention: the board does not support IDE/ATA devices natively and using a 2 slot wide videocard in the 1st PCI-E 16x slot renders the PCI-slot useless. This because it's covered by the videocard. This is not as big an issue in a single card configuration: you can always use the 2nd PCI-E 16 slot if you really need the PCI-slot. A crossfire setup renders the PCI-slot completely useless. Overall it's a well build, good priced and very stable board in my experience.

    The Asus Sabertooth X58 and Foxconn BloodRage X58 are my two boards of choice. Note, I don't own either of them but I have a BNIB i7 950 that's dying to go in one of them, haha.

    I have a Sabertooth myself and I like it, Asus P6X58D-E or Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R might also be good choices. My Sabertooth is running an i7-950 @ 4.2 GHz.
