I hope you mean May 2006, and not March 2007

pick the LGA775 / Intel 945P chipset and both MoBo's will show up. Add them to the compare, and everything will be neatly side by side
At first glance, the Deluxe has a second PCI-E Slot (NOT SLI certified!). and extra SATA ports. Read this review and pay attention to the dual PCI-E x16 slots that are not SLI, but can be used for quad displays.
The board features two PCI-E x16 slots that can be hooked up to video cards, however SLi is not officially supported. Instead, you can connect the two cards to four display units and enjoy quad view. Keep in mind that you can run the secondary video card at either PCI-E x4 speed by disabling the onboard x1 slot or at PCI-E x2 speed.
If you want that functionality, then Deluxe, otherwise I see no reason personally.
