The first one has a better onboard graphics, but the second one has a far better cpu. If it was me I would go with the second one. The express 200 onboard is pretty good.

Default ohh also

the 2nd one is worth $50 more than the 1st one...1st one. Just wasn't sure how good HyperTransport technology would be with video and RAM compare to one doesn't have it...i like second selection...just wish had HT technology or Better video that was intergrated.
