  1. The h55 has video ports for i3 and i5 cpus that have the graphics on the cpu die, such as the i3 530, which I use. The p55 requires a separate video card.

    so you mean to say theres no on board VGA output in a P55 motherboard,

    and here i am referring to the socket 1156 intel chipset motherboard .

    Correct, P55 boards don't have on-board video capabilities. On H55, H57 or Q57 have that option with an appropriate Intel i3 & i5 CPU's. Which means, you can use an i5 760 on the H55 and have on-board video, since the chip doesn't support it. You would need to have a dedicated GPU.
