Those are the two most expensive motherboards and they have Realtek for an audio chip set? Neither did and should have bundled a Killer NIC and X-Fi to provide true hardware LAN/audio which increases gaming performance/quality. Neither impressed me. The Asus is the worst because of the layout. Asrock will keep your gigantic dual cards cooler by a huge margin, eve if they were triple slot cards while Asus won't. And what's with the IDE and floppy connectors?? PS/2 ports?????? Any self respecting gamer should have a USB mouse/keyboard these days.

So far I find the IntelBOXDP67BG the most sophisticated, neat and tidiest of the bunch. Wait for the reviews when they come out, but this is it!

Just an FYI, PS2 is far superior to USB for keyboards.

FYI, higher-end boards don't have higher gaming performance than other boards.

Build quality. It use component you don't see on other high end board which are better. It also don't have all the ROG known issue like crappy ram compatibility and the SSD boot issue. With a shitload of fonction and a good lay out.

And to top it off, the Sabertooth has some merit in the cooling of its board components, not just marketing FUD from what I've read so far.
That is always a plus.

Or we could wait to see what Sapphire is brewing in the MB department since they stole most of EVGA's engineers.

No idea how long its going to take them, but with that kind of engineering team I expect big things.
