What's the diff?

hello!

could someone explain to me the difference in chipsets between P55 and X58?

i am going to attempt my first computer build and may be getting a motherboard that has the P55 chipset. i'm not sure exactly what that means.

here is the mobo i may be working with. MSI P55-GD65 Motherboard LGA 1156 Intel P55 DDR3 ATX.

thank you for any responses.
