Okay so i absolutely love this MSI P55A GD65
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

But have been looking for the generic version.
MSI P55_ GD65
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I have not been able to find the "A" on MSI's site to get more in depth details on that board. Nor have i found anything on major sites, always refers me back to the p55 Gd55 Etc etc. Anyone on here ever done a comparison for i have not found one on Toms or other sites..?

I've never seen a direct comparison between those two boards.
But from my understanding the A model is a newer board which features usb3.0 and sata 3.

The "Big" differences are PCIe Scaling vs SATA3 + USB 3.

Between the (2) which is more important?
1. PCIe x16/x16 & SATA2 + USB 2 & CF or SLI
2. PCIe x8/x8 & SATA3 + USB 3 & CF only

OKay now next question. Both boards have 6 black SATA 3GB connections and each has a WHITE SATA connection *assumingly a 3gb* is that 1 solo connection supposed to be esata? Cuz TBH thats my first guess. secondly.. if its a generic port.. i vote we all Email MSI and tell them to make all there AM3, Lga 1156/1366 boards and start putting ONE of there sata ports up near the 24 pin connector for our 5.5" bays, or for cases that have front esata ports.
