Intel 975X chipset VS Intel 955X chipset - Page 2

The 975X supports up to 8GB of RAM while the 955X only supports up to 4GB. The 975X allows for dual-channel when you are using different size and speed memory, without losing the size or speed, the 955X doesn't. Go the extra $40 and get yourself the P5WD2-E Premium.
And so does the P5WD2-Premium 955X. And I think it's an extra $26 at newegg.

The memory controller has been optimised: The 975X controller hub comes with improved electrics such as optimised ball-out and other optimisations aiming for better bandwidth and lower latency. As already with the 955X chipset Intel’s “Flex Memory Technology” supports different memory module sizes to be inserted and still remain in dual-channel mode. Intel is claiming that the 975X chipset will work with “Conroe”, the successor to “Presler”. While there is no reason to doubt that the 975X chipset itself will do so, it has to be seen whether this applies indeed for first generation 975XE motherboards. It is no secret that the planned “Conroe” Extreme Edition, to be released towards the end of 2006, will run with a 1333 MHz system bus. And indeed we found a 1333 MHz FSB frequency choice in Intel’s 975XBX motherboard’s BIOS. Another improvement is that now 2 PCI Express controllers in the MCH enable “2 x 8” operation for the 16 PCI Express lanes.
