Default Motherboard choice

Hey all, i am in a last minute dilemma. I have 2 choose between 2 motherboards for my system. They are...

Newegg.com - ASUS P6X58D-E LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

and

Newegg.com - ASUS P6X58D Premium LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

The second motherboard is on sale, with an additional 10 percent off TODAY, if i buy it. I already have my i7-930 chip, so it will be going with that. I will link to my other thread, page 2, where it pretty much sums up my build. Any help is greatly appreciated. Sorry for the last minute delay, but i just noticed the 10 percent off, and if i go with that motherboard, it will come in handy...

Link to my build thread...Its page 2, and it pretty much sums up the build...

Noob Build...Help?
