Which of these three boards is the best bang for my buck? I want it to last a long time (aka future-proof and durable); and be able to sli two 970's. I will also be overclocking an i5 4690k to about 4Ghz. Here are the boards: PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant

All 3 are great. The sabertooth might be best bang for a buck though.

What're the main advantages of the Sabertooth over the Z97-A? I'm not seeing much of a difference.

I have the same question, as it looks like the Sabertooth doesn't even have an M.2 slot.
