Asus Sabertooth P67 vs Gigabyte Z77X-DEH

Hey,

So I'm in the process of finding a suitable upgrade for my current rig, I have settled on a 2500k and 8GB ram, however while looking for motherboards I saw that the Asus Sabertooth P67 was on sale for roughly the same price as the board I was looking at. Obviously the sabertooth is P67 whereas the gigabyte is Z77 leaving me more of a future to upgrade however would the asus be a better bet if I was to miss out ivy bridge/haswell ( if thats Z77 compatible ) and jump onto a new socket when it comes out?

Here are the boards in question..

VS

http://www.cclonline.com/product/78337/GA-Z77X-D3H/Moth... - £103

My Budget is £300 so I have roughly £110 to spend on a motherboard would a different board be better than the two linked?
I'm going to be using it as an eyefinity gaming rig which will sport two 6950's in crossfire soon so crossfire is a must.

Thanks!

If you are getting the 2500K you probably are not going to upgrade again until new platform. The P67 would be fine in that case.

Ok thanks, I just wanted assurance as I'm not the most experienced at picking parts. I will likely pick up the parts next week!
