H55 or H57?

I would like to build a PC based on the i7 860. But which motherboard do I get and what chipset? I came across the Gigabyte GA-H57M-USB3 which is a H57 Mobo. Another option is the GA-H55-USB3 which is a H55 Mobo. I would have thought that the H57 chipset has slightly better features than the H55 chipset but they are otherwise the same. Is that tight? If so, should I get a H57 Mobo and if so which one? Is the Gigabyte GA-H57M-USB3 a good choice?

Thanks in advance for your help

Thanks for the specs table. I've sen this table on this site and as far as I understand it, the H57 Mobo is slightly better. Anyone has first hand expereince or saw a review comparing these two chipsets? which is better and then what Mobo would you recommend?

i'd think a h55 is pretty sufficient for average needs.. don't waste extra bucks on h57
