Re: 975x or 965 intel chipset motherboard?
975X has more PCI Express lanes, suitable for two video slots.
975X Northbridge supports ECC on memory.
ICH7/ICH7R Southbridge used on 975X supports PATA (ribbon cable hard drives).
975X *may* allow X6800 multiplier setting to be raised above stock.
(965 BIOS are less consistent on this.) I don't consider this a
feature, as it is hard to get info.
The Intel comparison chart here, doesn't do a good job
of identifying any highlights.
