so im looking at getting a new motherboard for my new build and im not sure which of these is better since its not much of a price difference. im still pretty new to this so id like opinions .id like to save any money possible so if they are the same id like to know
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 like i dont want to buy it and in a year it will be outdated i dont know what amd is doing the the pci 3.0 stuff but anyway think it will last a while?
