Dangmidnight,

Top of the line LGA 2011 motherboard however the Reviews are NOT good.

Read FEEDBACK TAP from others.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/.....#38;Page=1

May be should consider an Ivy Bridge LGA 1155 motherboard Build which is less expensive.

Also you can't use and don't need a PCI Sound Card.

ADDED: Appears much electronics is lacking in quality now that is coming our far east. (Don't know why)

Great !

Motherboard supports (on-board sound 7.1)

Download Manual

sabertooth x97 does NOT have on-board WiFi or BlueTooth which must be added. Is an older MB.

MEANT SPD (Typo Error) :( :(

SPD Definition

As long as modules support Intel XMP 1.3 (Extreme Memory Profile) in SPD You can use either Kit you like. :) :)
