Default I can't decide! Which mobo should I buy?

Asus P5B LGA775 P965 - ASUS P5B LGA 775 Intel P965 Express ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail
Asus P5B-Plus LGA 775 P965 - ASUS P5B-Plus LGA 775 Intel P965 Express ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail
To my eyes they look so identical... I don't know which one should I choose for this system:

Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 2.4GHz retail no overclock
Either Corsair or OCZ DDR2 PC2-6400 4GB 2x2GB Dual Channel RAM
Antec P180 ATX Advanced Mid Tower Aluminum Case 4X5.25 1X3.5 6X3.5INT No PS W/ USB & Audio Ports
Antec SP-500 Smartpower 2.0 ATX12V2.0 20/24PIN 500W Power Supply
Sapphire Radeon X1950 Pro 575MHZ PCI-E 256MB 1.38GHZ GDDR3 Dual DVI-I TV-OUT Lite Retail Video Card
Samsung SH-S183A Black SATA DVD+RW 18X8X16 DVD-RW 18X6X16 DL 8X INT DVD Writer OEM W/ SW
Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 320GB SATA2 3GB/S 7200RPM 16MB Cache Ncq Hard Drive

...and probably 64bit windows os (either vista premium or xp).

Can either of mobos support these parts perfectly?
And what kind of soundcard should I get for either of these mobos for 2.1 speakers? (I heard onboard sound is horrible in these mobos)

Please help me! :help:
