the only difference is what comes with the package. I had to actually call tiger for the difference between the T-1 and A-1 packages. all the way at the bottom of the page is a list of what comes with the package. choose off what is offered.... get the T-1, more cables

I just bought mine so I couldn't tell you performance. I will say, I like intel, and I like nVidea, so this should be a great mobo for you. it's SLI ready, and quad core ready (socket 775)

I heard the A-1 revision is better at OC'ing. The performance is really good. I have one and am happy with it. I can't compare it to anything though since this is my first build. I like how the BIOS is setup, its very clean and easy to use.
