Default Asus Rampage Gene III vs Asus Sabertooth x58

Hey, I was wondering what the differences between these motherboards were:

http://www.canadacomputers.com/produ...item_id=033170
http://www.canadacomputers.com/produ...item_id=032569
http://www.canadacomputers.com/produ...item_id=034120

My build is going to look something like this:

Intel Core i7-950 CPU
Zotac GTX 480 GPU
Patriot Sector 7 Trip-channel RAM
Antec 750W PSU

Which motherboard would accommodate my build the best? I think I might plan to overclock my CPU and maybe my GPU.

Thanks in advance!

Cheers!

My friend has the Maximus Gene III and it's pretty awesome, but i think the Sabertooth takes the prize for the better mobo here.

I see Canada Computer Links, I actually work in the Brampton Location. If you live near brampton, come see me at the store, names Luke, and I'd gladly help you.

Anyhow, the Sabre Tooth boards do have a slight better review and performance then the Rampage series, but both are great.

So the gigabyte board isn't worth looking at? :O I mean its the cheapest one. Is it worth the extra $30 to get the sabertooth?

If I plan to overclock, would getting the Gigabyte GA-X58-USB3 be better or getting the Evga x58 3-way SLI motherboard be better? Considering the $60 price difference, which one would be the most cost efficient choice?

Thanks in advance!

I don't think buying a motherboard is a cost efficient decision. I think it boils down to wether or not you will use all the extra features you are paying for..
