    Default Difference between Asus P5Q & Asus P5Q Deluxe?

    I'm considering a P45 chipset even though they are meant to be a pain to overclock, so what's the diference between these two, as there's a 35 price difference.

    ok, i found out, so i may aswell post it here just incase it helps anyone else.

    1. Deluxe supports CrossFire (2 16x PCI-e instead of just the one).
    2. Deluxe has an external sata port.
    3. Deluxe has 2 gigabit lan ports instead of one.
    4. Different audio codec (Deluxe: ADI AD2000B 8-channel High Definition; Vanilla: Realtek ALC1200, 8-channel High Definition.
    5. Deluxe has 16 phase power, vanilla baord has 8.
    6. Different heatsinks - the one on the Deluxe has more coverage.
    Seems worth it to me.

    I've read somewhere that the P5Q Deluxe only supports DDR2 memory, while the P5Q3 Deluxe is DDR3.
