    Asus 990FX ROG is better and cheaper than this - and sports the new UEFI bios. Not sure why Gigabyte feel they can get away with £200 when Asus only charge £165 for their all singing and dancing board - thats also feels more modern and up to date.

    I'm deffinately going for ASUS with my next board but the only thing I'm struggling with is chosing between the crosshair and the sabretooth... Probs going for the crosshair but I'm not sure why.

    I was having the same dilemma as you two months ago and in the end saved £60 and went with the M599 EVO - I didn't require the extra PCI express lanes the fx chip offered over the x . Other than those extra lanes there really isn't much difference accepted colour.

    I have the UD5 version of this board rather htan the UD7 version. Good board ... shame it doesn't have the same PCI slot layout as this one though.
