It a good mobo and it looks sick, but there are cheaper options out there that offer the same features.

Do you already have the cpu?

If yes, then: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157271

If no, then get this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.985159

I actually have the Sabertooth and a 3750k, I love it!

EDIT: But it's optimized for Ivybridge, I wouldn't get one if you aren't planning to go ivy.

I did hear good thing about asrock mobo. However, I'm not too sure.. there is lots of review with RMA comments... makes me nervous.. I will eventually get Ivy bridge so should I just go for sabertooth or just get asrock and later on get ivy bridge mobo later on?
