Help deciding between two Motherboards

I need help deciding between two Motherboards. I'm looking at the Asus P8Z77-V Deluxe Z77 Chipset and the ASUS sabertooth Z77 Chipset. They will be mainly used for gaming and they would need to be compatible with the following parts:

Case: Thermaltake Chaser MK-1 Full Tower Gaming Case W/ Side Panel Window
Adding in 1-2 extra 120 mm fans besides the default three fans in the case.

CPU: Intel® Core™ i7-3770 3.40 GHz 8MB Intel Smart Cache LGA1155
Cooling Fan: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo Gaming Cooling Fan
Memory: 8GB (4GBx2) DDR3/1600MHz Dual Channel Memory (Corsair Vengeance)

Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670 2GB 16X PCIe 3.0 Video Card (EVGA FTW Edition)
Power Supply : 850 Watts - Corsair Professional Series CMPSU-AX850 80 Plus Gold Power Supply (looking at SLI later)
Hard Drive: 2TB (2TBx1) Western Digital Caviar Black SATA-III 6.0Gb/s 64MB Cache 7200RPM HDD

Optical Drive: 24X Double Layer Dual Format DVD+-R/+-RW + CD-R/RW Drive
Thermal Display: NZXT Sentry-2 Fan Touch Screen Fan Control & Temperature Display
Flash Media Reader/Writer: INTERNAL 12in1 Flash Media Reader/Writer

Thank you in advance

    You should link your mobos in question xD But I think I found them aannnnnd,

    I believe they are basically exactly the same. But from what I've read the sabertooth has a little bit better of a heatsink, however that's just opinion, the person who said that did not have any solid facts.

    Apparently it's basically down to which paint job you like better.
  2. Thanks for the reply, I think I'm going to go with the ASUS sabertooth Z77 Chipset.
