I need to buy a mobo but I can't choose between these two.
The ASUS SABERTOOTH 990FX R2.0 is 145 EU for me and the ASRock 990FX Extreme4 is 123 EU for me, so there isn't a really big price difference.

Secondary information:
1. I'm going 280x Crossfire, unless it has worse performance then the 760.
2. I'm getting a third card, a 7770 for particles, this is also going to be my backup card until I got enough money for the other components.
3. I'm not planning on OCing.
4. I already have ram, a harddrive and a CPU fan.
5. The case that I'm going to buy is the NZXT crafted series phantom http://www.nzxt.com/product/detail/34-phantom I can't choose between assassin's white and red or just black

Secondary questions.
Would a 300W PSU be enough for a 7770?

Any assistance is appreciated

The Sabertooth is made for OC'ing. I got it myself and will be XFiring a 7970 in it. I did OC my FX-8350. If the price difference isn't big then just got with the Asus.

And my other question
Would a 300W PSU be enough for a 7770? with a really low end low production quality mobo that bottlenecks an 8120 CPU?
My 8120 is running on stock speed so it's approximately 105W, it's probably just 90-100W. My mobo with all of it's add-ons like 8GB ram and a harddrive will be about 80-90 wattage. A 7770 has 80-90 Wattage, so would my 300W PSU be enough? and if it is, would he be able to run my PC for longer then 2-4 months?, since that would be the amount of time left between me and my new and upgraded PC
