I currently in the process of build my new computer with X79 this is my build
Case: Thermaltake Level 10 GT
Motherboard: Sabertooth X79 LGA 2011
Processor: Intel i7-3930k
Power Supply: Thermaltake TPG-1050M
Hard Drive 1: Samsung Series 830 128GB ( Primary OS)
Hard Drive 2: Samsung Series 830 128GB (Using for SSD cacheing)
Hard Drive 3: Seagate Barracuda 3TB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0 Gb/s (using for SSD Cacheing)
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 16GB Quad Channel memory 4x4GB ( planing on getting another set for 32GB in system)
CPU Cooler: Corsair H100 Liquid CPU Cooler
Video Card: ASUS ENGTX570 DCII (planning to get another one for 2-way SLI)

I bought the Sabertooth X79 board and the ASUS ENGTX570 DCII and was planning to go 2-way SLI but i'm not sure if I will be able to this. Does anyone know if you can fit 2 ASUS ENGTX570 DCII in the Sabertooth X79?

Yes, you can. The Asus GTX570 DCII is a triple-slot card, and the Sabertooth X79 has two slots between the PCIe x16 slots. So there shouldn't be any problem.

Yes, the ASUS GTX570 is a triple slot card, but the sabertooth has 2 slots in between the slots, so you are good to go! Although, you will have NO more expansion slots.

Hope this helped! :)
