Windows 7: Computer Upgrade

Yes the Asus pro would be sufficient for my needs but the main reason I picked the Sabertooth is for the dust control.
I have a very dusty environment where I use my computer (instead of a can of compressed air I use a pick and shovel)
It is a lot of extra money but I think it will be worth it in the long run.

Sabertooth is the only one with a cover over the main board ,I looked for other boards that might have this but nope not even AMD Sabertooth has a cover

I would like to point even though it has a covering you will still need to dust it IMHO you really won't benefit from it being covered anymore if it was a standard ATX dust will jump in there no matter what you do it's just the circle of life

Precisely right on the dust and in fact the little fans will actually draw the dust and and it will be out of sight but it shouldn't be out of mind. Blow out with air every 2 months at least !

Best thing for you to do is invest in case filters that would be the only conclusion to your dust problem

The ASUS H87-PRO mentioned above looks like a very good value for money board. Have you considered the i5-4670. Here is a comparison with your existing CPU.
Intel Core 2 Extreme QX6850 vs Core i5-4670
The only difference if I was building a new PC would be an i5-4670k since I overclock sometimes.

Use this filter set and run positive case pressure, ie more intake air than exhaust air.

I use the DemciFlex on my haf 922 and haf 932. I raise exotic cats and always have 2-3 hanging around me in the office wanting to help with wiring and small part installations. I need to clean the filters every two weeks or so but they keep 99%+ of the dust and hair from reaching the inside of the case. What does get in is easily removed with a DataVac.
