They're the exact same thing except for the cheaper one having 2 DVI (monitor) ports instead of 1 DVI and 1 VGA.

They will perform equally, but the one you posted has a DVI slot and a VGA slot. That wont matter though unless you're going to run dual monitors. (DVI is better by the way)

EDIT: haha, ignore my post, didn't see trieclipse's post for some reason

you can use the onboard sound. It won't be as good as a sound card though.

And don't get a ide hdd when you've got 6 sata 3gb/s slots. Go for the WD 160gb 16mb sataII ...it has the same amount of space and will run alot faster then that ide drive...meaning your load times in games will decrease.
