  4. I had the same dilemma before between Asrock Extreme 9 and Asus Sabertooth R2.0.

    I went for the Asus since it has real 8+2 power phase design. Asrock's 12+2 is actually 6+1 times 2. Also, the Asus has better VCore and northbridge chipset heatsinks.

    I would suggest that you take a look at Asus Sabertooth R2.0 Gen3 as well since it has PCIE 3.0. Not that it matters for now (since Radeon 7950 will not be "bottlenecked" by PCIE 2.0 but it will max it out) but it will be future proof. and of course it feels good to know you got PCIE 3.0 on your board.

    That.
  6. For that budget, this is the best board. Boards from Asus are known for their quality and ease of use. The failure rates of Asus are the least among every board manufacturer and they offer some extra small things which makes them different from others.
