There is a difference between them, I just don't Know it.

I believe this is the one I bought.
Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-965P-DS3 LGA 775 Intel P965 Express ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail

I am not completly sure of it, the one I bought had " V3.3" in its title. So I don't know..
Youd assume the newer version has an updated BIOS or some fixes. But again I don't Know them.

There are better overclocking boards. I dunnue like the newer 680Is or the DQ6's or something... Not that the 965P DS3 is a bad choice..

i think its a bios revision, to fix out the kinks from the original one as well as giving it more functionability

My computer uses 1.5A-load, .8A-idle, .65A-standby, .05A-turned off on 125V.

* Rev. 1.0: FSB 1066MHz, one system fan header, ALC883 (Vista Basic Logo)
* Rev. 1.3: FSB 1333MHz, one system fan header, ALC883
* Rev. 2.0: FSB 1066MHz, three system fan headers, ALC888 (Vista Premium Logo)
* Rev. 3.3: FSB 1333MHz, three system fan headers, ALC888

So rev. 1.3 has a slightly older audio chipset. That's seems to be about it, compared to 3.3...
