Depends, there are many differences, namely 2 PCIe slots on the deluxe and overall it is a better board, but if you only have 1 graphics card and don't plan on buying 2 to run hacked SLI, I would go for the non-deluxe version and save some cash.

The Deluxe can achieve higher clocks right? Isn't the MCH voltage upped over the standard P5B so it can reach clocks well into the 450 range?

That's what I've heard...plus Nasgul uses the Deluxe, so that's why I want it

Neither the P5B or the P5B Deluxe have onboard video.

If you plan on overclocking, then I would go with the P5B Deluxe. The 8 phase power supply to the CPU is a much better design.

If you don't need to overclock, then the P5B will do just fine.

Hope this helps

Id go with the deluxe. And even though it has 2 PCIe x16 slots, you can use one for a PCIe x1, x4, or x8 card if you want.
