    Why select X58 over P55 (or vice-versa)?

    snahl

      Hi,

      I am confused wether to select a board with chipset X58 or P55 and would appreciate if someone can help my clarify the differences and advantages between the two.

      The goal is to build a new high-end desktop machine based on Core i7. This as for processing hundreds of 32-bit-HDR images. The systems OS will be Windows7 and will also include a proper color-management (with a FOGRA certified color graphics display, NEC Synchmaster).

      As of now I have chosen the boards DX58SO and the DP55KG. It is difficult for me to find arguments to justify and make the right decsision.

      Thanks for your replies, Hans.
