The first is an ASUS P6X58D LGA 1366 X58 SATA 6 USB 3.0 ATX 6-240 pin DDR3 The second is an ASUS Sabertooth LGA 1366 X58 SATA 6 USB 3.0 ATX 6-240 pin DDR3 The ASUS P6X58D costs $100.00 more than the Sabertooth. Differences (how significant are they and are they sufficient to make a decision one way or the other? Feature ASUS P6X58D ASUS SABERTOOTH PCI Express 2.0 x16 3 x PCIe 2.0 x16 (at x16/x8/x8 or x16/x16/x1 mode) 2 x PCIe 2.0 x16 (dual at x16/x16 mode) PCI Express x16 None More about : asus motherboards | E-mail me updates | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Maziar Motherboard Master February 26, 2011 5:12:31 AM The main difference between them is that P6X58D has 3 PCI-E slots;whereas, sabertooth has 2,so unless you need 3 way SLI,go with sabertooth | Report abuse mosox Motherboard Authority February 26, 2011 5:46:03 AM The most recommended in here is the Asus P6X58D-E, $210. | Report abuse Maziar Motherboard Master February 26, 2011 8:41:32 AM Yep but still if 3-way SLI isn't needed,sabertooth is a great choice and it's cheaper too.(Though only $10 cheaper than P6X58D-E) | Report abuse johnnyq1233 Motherboard Expert February 26, 2011 1:34:33 PM But doesn't that board allow you the option of using the third PCI-E slot as a geometry processing card? Which would make gaming a lot better! | Report abuse tarek0 April 23, 2011 8:34:39 PM It Depends on your gaming needs, if you are going hardcore gaming u will need a third Graphic Card (P6 X58D-E), but both boards are great. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Motherboards>ASUS motherboards> Related ressources: ForumAsus Motherboards ForumDo Asus Motherboards Support OS X Mountain Lion?
