For the vast majority of Gamer's I recommend the following MOBO's for 2-WAY:
Z68 ASUS P8Z68-V PRO
P67 P8P67 PRO (REV 3.0) or (3.1) whichever is the cheaper

You want at least 12-Phases to the CPU for Sandy Bridge LGA 1155 for the (K) versions and you plan to OC the CPU.

Clearly, the i7-2600 will NOT OC so a 4~8 Phase MOBO is fine, those above are 12-Phase and i.e. cost a little more.

Cheapest with best OC's support as I posted above originally is the P8P67 PRO (REV 3.1).

The ASUS P8P67 are similar MOBO without SLI nor good Crossfire support (x16/, x16/x4). See -> http://in.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_1155/P8P67...

So I rarely recommend the vanilla ASUS P8P67.

Now keep in mind, if you're NOT going to Game then the cheapest overall is the ASUS P8Z68-V PRO depending on your local prices; no GPU required and the Intel HD 3000 does anything 2D just fine.

If we compare P8P67 Asus mobo with sabertooth p67, which one is best and why?

Using an i7-2600K neither and as stated 12-Phase minimum.

If I had to choose then the ASUS SABERTOOTH P67 only because of CF/SLI support, but I'd never buy one...
