Buy the ASUS end of. Why?
1- 5yr warranty on ASUS
2- Overclocks just as well if not better (due to higher spec components)
3- Comes with software that enables "fast charge"
4- Looks better
5- can flash BIOS using USP if you break it

Also, my recommendation regarding the rest of your PC specs:
- swap to an i5 3570K if you only plan on planing games or software that doesn't use multithreading or use multiple cores
- swap the PSU for something from Corsair, SeaSonic or XFX. These PSUs are MUCH better and more reliable. You don't want a "cheap" PSU taking out the rest of your components
-change to a 23"+ LCD.

[EDIT]
Only saw now that you want to run Solid Edge, stick with the i7 then

UD5H.
It has more power phases(12 vs 8 of the sabertooth), it's cheaper, has all the features you need, overall i'd get the gigabyte, offers better quality.
The sabertooth is overpriced, and its thermal armor is useless.
