Hello,
What is the difference between those 2 motherboards and is it worth of paying extra?

  1. Just get the one that's cheapest, they're both pretty good boards, it won't make your system any faster or more stable to have a higher end mobo.
  2. They have different PCI config:
    Pro:
    2 x PCIe 2.0 x16 (single at x16 or dual at x8/x8 mode)
    1 x PCIe 2.0 x16 * [Black] (max. at x4 mode, compatible with PCIe x1 and x4 devices)
    2 x PCIe 2.0 x1
    2 x PCI
    *The PCIe x16_3 slot shares bandwidth with PCIe x1_1 slot, PCIe x1_2 slot, USB3_34 and ESATA12. The PCIe x16_3 runs at x1 mode by default for system resource optimization.(PCIe x1_2 will be disabled.)
    Multi-GPU Support Supports NVIDIA® Quad-GPU SLI™ Technology
    Supports ATI® Quad-GPU CrossFireX™ Technology

    Not-pro:
    1 x PCIe 2.0 x16 (single at x16)
    1 x PCIe 2.0 x16 * (max. at x4 mode [Black])
    2 x PCIe 2.0 x1
    3 x PCI
    *The PCIEX16_2 slot shares bandwidth with the PCIEX1_1 slot, PCIEX1_2 slot and USB3_34 connector. The PCIEX16_2 runs at x1 mode by default for system resource optimization.
    Multi-GPU Support Supports ATI® Quad-GPU CrossFireX™ Technology

    Either there is a typo or only the pro supports SLI (multi-GPU for NVIDIA).
    The Pro has a JMicron controller for two real E-Sata ports.
    The Pro does not have a COM port.

    Is it worth it? Not unless you need to use two NVIDIA cards, or attach ESata drives.
  3. gamerk316 - well done. Can you post a link to that, just so that I know where to look next time (probably a different series of boards, of course).
