Anyone know of the differences between the Asus P67 EVO and the Pro?
I want to buy an Asus P67 Pro Motherboard today, but there are only 2 left at Fry's and they are both open-box returns and the other Fry's has only 6 left and ALL are open-box returns. So I'm thinking there may be an issue with the Pro's?
Is the EVO just as good?
On the Asus site specs, it seems the only differences are:
(and I'm not sure what any of the following means)
-On the Pro, the PCIe x16-3 slot shares bandwidth with the ESATA12
-On the EVO, the PCIe x16-3 slot shares bandwidth with the ESATA3G and the PESATA3G
|-The EVO has dual LAN's|
|-The EVO has a CMOS Switch|
|-The Pro has the "System Panel" Q-Connector|
Adobe seems to be heading towards allowing 2 video cards.
Would the EVO limit me if this happens?
I notice there's only one EVO on the PPBM5 site in the upper realms (Novak).
There seems to be more Pro's.
I don't plan on doing huge overclocking, maybe minor.
Components to be used:
-Corsair Vengeance 16GB
-Corsair AX 850 Watt Gold
-EVGA GTX 460 1GB Superclocked
-OCZ Agility 3 SSD 120GB
-Seagate Barracuda 3GB Storage
-Seagate Barracuda 1GB for Exports, Page File, Previews, Media Cache
-Seagate Barracuda 3GB Storage in Acomdata Samba External Enclosure for Backup
-WD My Book 3GB External for Another Backup
Any help would be appreciated.
