It has the features I'm looking for, seems to be well-reviewed, and I love the look (a minor consideration, but still helps). It seems to be in the right price range, as a step up means a fairly considerable step in cost. Its just a matter of waiting until they are released after the recall.

So in addition to apparently making really components, ASUS can also do a helluva nice promotional video. Maybe its good thing that the board isn't available right now, as I probably would have ordered that and the processor right after watching that.

No kidding...me too! LOL I thought you might enjoy that! I'm thinking on the same board for my upcoming build! Big Grin

That makes me quite happy. I used the live chat feature and talked to a real person (unassumingly) and got the "available in April". Must be their stock answer.

Probably what they were told to say. Most of them probably don't know any better either, can't blame them.

I was quite honestly surprised that the rep was able to give me the answer that quick, even if it was a standard answer. I figured to get some kind of "I'm looking into it" delay. I was actually oddly impressed by that. Positive note for Newegg, I guess.

RE: First PC Build
I was finally able to order everything. The ASUS Sabertooth board still isn't available on Newegg, but I did find the B3 revised version on another site which was recommended to me. Got everything else from Newegg... So in addition to the CM HAF X and the Kingwin 1000-watt PSU, I have the following on the way...

ASUS Sabertooth P67 TUF motherboard
Intel i5-2500K processor
G. SKILL Ripjaw 8GB DDR3 1600 RAM
HIS Radeon HD 6950 2GB video card
Western Digital Caviar Black 640GB HD (for OS)
Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB HD
Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus CPU cooler
ASUS DVD-writer
Windows 7 Home Premium full

I would like to add a second or even a third Samsung F3 drive later. Plus the dual 23" monitors. Eventually more RAM, though it will hardly be necessary for now. Should be able to put things together soon enough. Can't wait...
