looks like a good board, clean design, good layout, usb 3 and sata 3.
you won't be able to use the core i5 family cpus with that motherboard though.

Yeah, that's a AMD board, not Intel.

What are you looking to do with it? Are you a hardcore gamer? Audiophile? This will depend heavily on what we can suggest.

I've heard a lot of good things about the Asus Sabertooth and its not terribly expensive. Can save 20$ getting the i5 2500k combo too.

That is a good deal... The Sabertooth is awesome. Wish I had waited for them before I got my 1156 board.

Oh, here we go again...

Intel and AMD are two CPU companies. They both have their rises and falls. They run on separate chipsets. There have been several fights over which is better. The answer is price/performance/preference.
