ASUS P7P55D-E PROGetting the most out of Intel’s latest processors generally takes high quality components which most motherboard manufacturers want you to believe only their top-end products offer…then they go out and release mid-range parts.

The ASUS P7P55D-E PRO might not have the features high-end motherboards tout but Techgage was able to push the board to some respectable numbers:

Price-wise, the P7P55D-E PRO retails for ~$20 more than the original, and whether or not that’s worth it will be up to your specific tastes. The addition of S-ATA and USB 3.0 could be considered worthy of the higher SRP alone, especially since ASUS implements a PLX solution, meaning that neither S-ATA or USB 3.0 will draw bandwidth from your primary PCI-E 16x slot, which is what happens on current Gigabyte P55 boards that feature these two new technologies.

A slick board with the right options to build a well-rounded system.
