It would have been better to open a new thread rather than appending it to an old one.

Do you mean A 9400GT? I wouldn't expect a problem, in any mainboard with a PCI Express X16 slot.

i5 760 would be my pick, great CPU (I have the i5 750). The 680 has Hyperthreading, but the quad core will overall be a better choice.

Intel Core i5 I5-680 vs Intel Core i5 I5-760

Only the p7p55d-e PRO and the Premium have the 4 lane bridge chip the USB3 and SATA3 both to run at full rate without using any of your pci-e 16 graphics lanes.

http://usa.asus.com/compare.aspx

With the P7P55D-E and the LX you can have either USB3 or SATA3 at full rate but not both. And, if you do put one at full rate, you loose 8 lane of your PCI-E 16x graphics slot.

There are other subtle differences (no 1394, no 12+2 phase power on the LX, etc) so look at the comparison above before you decide what you want. Gigabyte has a similar comparison too.
