For example "2200mhz can only be achieved without HD graphics"
So because Im buying a graphics card should i go with the p55 board so i can get faster RAM??
neither h55 or p55 mobos have onboard video. the h55 just supports using the integrated gpu found on clarkdale cpus (ex: i3 5xx series, i5 6xx series).
both could probably be found for around the same price, but i would go with a p55 mobo.
not sure where you found that bit of info about ram, but i really dont think you should worry about it too much. unless youre going to be doing some serious OCing, i doubt you will need your ram running a 2200mhz.
