Is this motherboard worth the 240$?
I have been looking for a board to go with my 3570k as well. This is what I am about to head out to pick up.http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131819
It has every feature I need. And micro center has it for 160$ (50 bucks off any z77 with purchase of a CPU, which I am about to get as well).
I was going to get the Sabertooth or Formula V at first, when the Sabertooth was out of stock, and they didn't even carry the Formula I did a lot of research today. And read over the article http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/z77-extreme6-z77a-gd65-z77h2-a2x,3187.html
and decided the Pro was more than enough of what I needed. Compare the Sabertooth to the P8Z77-V PRO and you might end up making the same decision I just did. Sorry if its not the answer you were looking for, but just just figured I would give you my two cents since I just looked at every z77 board $200-300 about 20 times each
