Either one will do fine for you. The Sabertooth has more ports while the M5A99FX is less expensive, it has more ports than you will probably be using or even need.

so theres no real performance differences or anything that sets them apart really? and is it a safe buy? like i dont want to buy it and in a year it will be outdated :p  i dont know what amd is doing the the pci 3.0 stuff but anyway think it will last a while?

Either MB and the 7970 should carry you for many years to come.

No need to get the Sabertooth unless your cpu cooler is over 1kg in weight and/or you want to do some extreme OC. Just stick with M5A99FX Pro 2.0
