There's around a $30 difference between the two mobos. With my savings as it is, the $30 difference can be justified if you think the sabertooth is worth the extra dough. What are the advantages?

The gigabyte is a UD3 so I guess that's out of the question.

Would you mind explaining to me what the advantage of going with the sabertooth is?

In my opinion sabretooth will be easier RMA, easier to work with for oc, and have better power delivery.

Interesting points. I will have to research it a bit tomorrow at work.


Just out of curiosity. What would my old system be worth in the used market?

MOBO - gigabyte ep45-ud3p
CPU - Intel E7400
HS - TRUE Black
RAM - G.Skill F2 DDR2 2x2GB (extra 2gb stick of Mushkin lying around somewhere)
GPU - BFG GTX 260 Core 216

Hoping to recoup some cash after I setup the new rig. Would I be pushing it asking for $300?
