    Default Differences between Gigabyte 770 boards

    Hi.
    I looking for a board to support Phenom II, and i'm thinking at amd 770 chipset, because i don't have enough money for 790X,FX and i alsa have a 3850 video card so i don't need 780V,G.
    But when i search for a 770 board here are the options:
    GA-MA770-DS3 GA-MA770-DS3P GA-MA770-S3
    GA-MA770-S3P GA-MA770-UD3 GA-MA770-US3
    What are S, P, D? Where do i find the the differrences between those boards? When i select Comparison Sheet it shows no difference.
    I could send an email to tech support, but i think this is important for other people too. Thanks for your time.
    Excuse me for possibles english errors.

    Thanks for your message. I had already known some of them, but
    I thought that Gigabyte site has an utility or something to show differences between those boards (not Comparison Sheet which shows them identical).

    I think they may have something like that, but I cannot find it or remember where it is there.

    And of course some of that may differ for AMD boards, not sure. I think the letters should mean the same though
