My System Specs

Default Cannot choose X79 board! Stuck between 3 of them.

I'm making the move to the 2011 socket soon.. Need help picking out a motherboard! So, I can then go pick some nice ram to go match it and all the works.. I can go as high as the Rampage Formula, but I don't know if I need such a board. My build will cost about 1800 if I did that. Anyone that has these boards can make a recommendation?

MSI X79A-GD45 (8D) (I like the pricing on this one. Has everything!)

ASUS Sabertooth X79 (Another good one, kinda leery about that fan on it, it'd be fun to work with the color scheme. It probably overclocks as good as the Formula.)

ASUS Rampage IV Formula (This would probably make me a happy camper cause I OC like no tomorrow, but I'll have buyers remorse )
