The loss of RAID-capability and a few SATA ports won't cause too much of a stir for most people, but if you wanted to back up your media collection for a media PC then you'd need to make use of that PCI-Express x4 slot for a RAID card. Neither board produced spectacular numbers in the gaming results, though they at least managed a playable frame rate in Crysis at 1,680 x 1,024 with 2x AA of 25fps. However, the Asus P7P55-M was a good notch faster than these boards, though it will set you back an extra £10 and we found it doesn't generally overclock quite as far. Moreover, the Asus didn't perform as well in the 2D benchmarks, lingering towards the bottom of the graphs in all tests.
