    ASUS Sabertooth X99 Review: putting TUF in Haswell-E

    ASUS Sabertooth X99 Review: putting TUF in Haswell-E I remember when the first Sabertooth boards hit the market. The X58 Sabertooth was a unique product, mixing performance and niche looks in a package that looked rugged and built for toughness. Unsurprisingly, ASUS’ keyword for Sabertooth...

    ASUS GeForce GTX970 STRIX OC Review : Strix on Maxwell v2

    The second generation of Maxwell has been a big market disruptor. While the bigger, faster GTX980 set the bar for how flagship graphics cards should perform, the second in line, GTX970 brought R9 290X level performances in sub 30K price point and in turn forced the camp red to push prices down...

    High end gaming rig

    Since you will be using the setup for gaming, I'd say an i7-4790K (Or non-K, depending upon your overclocking requirements) paired with a good Z97 motherboard should be a good base platform.
