It is not faster from what I've seen. The benefit would be in 3-way SLI / Crossfire support, which you can't on the Sabertooth.

They both are based on the same chipset and thus will perform identically.. Other than the differences mentioned by Techmo, the R3F might just be a more better board for overclocking enthusiasts compared to the Sabertooth..

thanks everyone, exactly what im looking for, all great responses!

i dont plan on OCing like crazy and plan on having only 2 graphics cards with a possible Creative X-Fi sound card. i know that the rampage runs at diff speeds since it has 3 slots...but for the saber having 2 slots, do they both run at x16 if i were to have 2 cards in there?

Yes... it runs at x16, x16 when in a dual card setup.
