I am in a bind since I cant get my mind figured out. Leaning more towards the asrock extreme 9 tho.

just wanted to get a second opinion, that's all.

I have a Sabertooth and it is a great board. The BIOS is amazing and it has tons of useful features. Overclocks everything like a beast as well.

The Extreme 9 is a great board as well though. Basically a coin flip. I will warn you about the Sabertooth though, if you plan on using two cards your PCI-e slot will probably get covered up by one of them. I only use one video card so it's not a problem for me, just giving you a heads up.

I'd spend that extra $1.
Why is it that he can hit a 3rd baseman on a frozen rope from 300 feet away, but he can't hit a 12 foot tall catcher from 60 feet 6 inches away?

meh, I was going to do a trial run of the new crossfire patch with my old 7870 and my brothers 7850. But since they are both HIS with the iceq behemoth of a cooler, I may just go with the extreme9.
