I would like to know in plain english in a few sentences, the major differences between;Gigabyte GA7VRX andGigabyte GA7VRXPWhat does the P type do or have? I other words, what are the top 3 differences? Thanks for reading.

The P seems to have all the features of the "standard" model but with the following additions:* Built-in network 10/100 network card* The built-in sound card is a Creative instead of a generic brand* Built-in RAID controller (used to provide higher-performance hard disk access and also can provide "redundancy" - depending how it's set up, if one disk fails you may not lose your data). RAID stands for "R"edundant "A"rray of "I"ndependent "D"isks. You need a larger-than-normal computer case to hold the extra disks, though.* 4 IDE ports instead of 2. You can hook up twice as many IDE drives (hard drives, CD-ROMs, etc.). Useful if you want to set up a RAID.For some reason, it lists a joystick port. I'd be rather surprised if the standard one doesn't have one too - joyports usually go with sound cards, so if it's got a built-in sound card it "should" have a joyport too.Back to RAID for a second. You can set up a RAID with as few as 2 hard drives. There are different levels of RAID depending on how many drives you have and how they are set up. If it won't make your head explode, read for more info. :)HTH.
