Default ASUS SABERTOOTH P67

Newegg.com - ASUS SABERTOOTH P67 (REV 3.0) LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Is it worth the money or can I get a different board with equal performance for cheaper?

I orginally planned on buying: Newegg.com - MSI P67A-G43 (B3) LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard for my build (Finally ready to build my PC. Have a look please.)

I merged your two threads together. Do Not Start a New Thread for every question you may have on this subject.

Unless you choose a different CPU, like the i5 2500K or the i7 2600K, the Asus mobo is a waste of money. Spend that money on a better video card instead.

Sorry about that. Which graphic card in a decent price range($100-$150) would you recommend ?

The Asus is $210 and the MSI is $125, that's a difference of $85. Spend that additional $85 on a better video card than the 5770 (which is $140). $140 + $85 = $225. For approximately $215 you can get a GTX560.

The GTX 560 is a better card.

Hm you are right did a few searches and the gtx 560 is better. One question I notice some gtx 560 cards have a "Ti", What does that mean?

-Whats the difference between the card you posted and this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...01G-P3-1461-KR

560 Ti > 560
560 Ti has more processors, I think, so it's a little more powerful.

Sparkle gives lifetime warranties. 18 of their graphics cards, I think. The only ones that don't get it, I think, are the GTX 570 and the GTX 550 Ti.

- I never heard anyone talk about the brand Sparkles, but I could always give it a try and if it sucks return it.
