Default Gigabyte mobo chipset differences?

What is the difference (chipset wise) between the Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3 and the Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3R?
Are the chipsets different enough performance wise to where it would matter which one you bought?
Very similar prices and pretty much identical boards besides that. Was just curious.

definitely get the p35 one, the 965p needs special ram, the p35 is better overall

The P35 is a better overclocker, and also future ready for Intel's 45nm processors.

...I wonder how nice newegg would be about me sending the 965P back to them to get the P35. I originally meant to get the P35 and I guess I miss clicked and didn't pay attention

It might depend on how long ago, you got the 965P. But newegg agents are usually very nice. And also, tell them your situation. That you meant to purchase a P35 chipset.

They will make you pay for the shipping again on returning and the new board but It's much worth it.

P35 is newest, and will support 45nm CPU's too. 965 chipset, (however is as performing as p35) will lack future upgrade. as I had just finished reading the X38 chipset test and p35 was neck-neck with X38.

if you want performance Motherboard on P35, get the P35-DQ6 series Motherboard. else, whatever you wrote, is good to go.
