The only differences I could find is that the Premium has slightly different heatsinks and also has a second LAN port.

However, some differences may not be visible. The premium may be better engineered to handle higher speeds and the Premium may have a better bios.

But the boards look very very similar. If I had to pick I'd get the Asus P6X58D-E because I can't see enough differences that warrent the $70 premium.
