Greetings and salutations! I had a system that broke down a long time ago and I've been gaming on a laptop (BOOoo!)

Recently (Thank you Uncle Sam) I received taxes and I am purchasing a new rig! I am torn since I've wanted the Sabertooth Z77's sexy look.. Although with Built in Wifi on the P8Z77-V, and one Free Corsair 8GB 1600 Vengeance Stick.. I'm having trouble settling on one! .. Anybody have any opinions or suggestions?

I'm going to order one of these setups from NewEgg today! Hoping I can get some good feedback with some words of wisdom or direct experience with mentioned hardware.

The Sabretooth's heatshield is an expensive gimmick. It defeats the native cooling of well designed cases.

Considering my case is a Lian-Li Full aluminum case, basically a heatsink itself, I think this comment is well founded. I was about to place my order for the Sabertooth z77 and now I see your comment.. As well think about the fact that the Sabertooth does not have DLNA Streaming since there's no built in Wifi GO!

Hmm so TORN! I also LOVE the Sabertooth's little Dust Defender peices for the PCI and other Port son the Mobo.. wish you could find those separately..
Oh Here's some Dust Covers!

I went for the P8-Z77-V...

One I do need WIFI, so wtf wouldn't Sabertooth have it if it's a deluxe status board? .. Secondary.. I have a Cat.. I do NOT look forward to removing the Thermal Armor to clean out the dust/hair every year and/or if all else fails and my CR2032 Battery goes dead right? More hassle is not my style..

Third... Price point, still getting all the ASUS goodies just going to make sure my case has great air flow, got some coolmasters for that. Who needs thermal armor with build experience? ;-)

Lastly, who the FRAK turns down a FREE Stick of CORSAIR DDR3 1600 8gb?!
