Default X38 vs P35

Is there big difference between those two types of motherboards?

I think you meant X38? Main difference is the X38 having two PCIe 2.0 slots, and a little more tweaking for overclocks.

In addition to the two PCIe 2.0 slots, the crossfire also is full 16x/16x, compared to the p35's.

Yea...I think most, if not, all the P35s supporting Crossfire, is 16x/4x.

P35 if you want to go SLI. X38 if you want to go crossy. The x38 chipset is alot newer and supports some newer tech but, the only reason i would go with x38 is if i planned on crossy.

I think x48 has only ddr3 support, as in DDR3 speeds only.
also depending on the motherboard, x38 and x48 will support the 1600FSB cpus in the future, good for if your looking for a longer investment.

Some X48s support DDR2. Such as the Gigabyte X48-DQ6 and ASUS Rampage Formula.
