That board also has some good looking heatsinks. The one option I do like about the UD3R is the IDE and FDD controller. I'm not using them now but you never know when you'll need these old devices (still have IDE devices in use in other PC's I have).
Not sure the Atom is the greatest analogy, Atom is also a really slow Intel CPU and it won't get you there anywhere near as fast as the i3.
OT, but id rather have the 65 Mustang Pony Car.
