Default MOBO's: ASUS vs ASUS

I cant decide between these boards :
ASUS MAXIMUS FORMULA LGA 775 Intel X38 ATX Intel Motherboard

or

ASUS P5E LGA 775 Intel X38 ATX Intel Motherboard

what are the differences?

Newegg.com - ASUS P5E LGA 775 Intel X38 ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail
Newegg.com - ASUS MAXIMUS FORMULA LGA 775 Intel X38 ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail

ASUSTeK Computer Inc.

not all that much...I believe the maximus just gives you a little bit more in terms of overclock control

but as you can see, not much, price difference is nominal

BIOS are different..Maximus lets you control voltages a little more than the P5E

with the maximus you get teh reset cmos button, you get two gigabite ports, you get onboard on and off switch you get the full version of 3dmark06, stalker shadows of chernobyl and kasperky anti virus. you also get better over clocking features, and an lcd poster when your which will display errors when your comp will not post, that thing saved me last night from trouble shooting my comp for 3 hours. the 30 bucks extra is well worth it in my opinion.
