You can save it locally and robocopy / batch file it over in the middle of the night to a server / network share. Everything Pro can do, Home can do with a little tweaking. :)
As for motherboards, I have the Sabertooth and UD3R. Both good motherboards, both overclock well. I don't have any personal experience with the ASUS P6X58D-E, however I would imagine it would be a great board also. Other than color, I don't much difference between the sabertooth and P6X58D-E.
Other than the Sabertooth runs the 3x PCie slots at 16x/16x/4x, and the P6X58D-E does 16x/8x/8x or 16x/16x/1x modes.
Edit: of the three, go with whatevers cheaper / on sale or used at a good price.
Edit2: I bought my Gigabyte UD3R from ncix's ebay.. for about $160. They sell their factory new, returns on their ebay site, and so far i've never had an issue with any of their ebay products.
I'll learn to manage my anger, when people learn to manage their stupid.
