Out of those two, go with the Intel barebone because it has a quad core. You just need to add the OS, hard drive, and CPU cooler to that. And you should also add the power supply. You can't trust the ones that are included with any case or barebone.

Both aren't bad... I personally like the Asus setup better... but you'll have to buy a CPU fan to go with it.

Ask anyone else here, and they would agree.

In general, power supplies included with cases and barebones are of low quality. They have a greater chance of failure, and there's a risk of it taking the whole system with it too. The power supply is probably the most important part of the computer, to not skimp on when buying/building a system. I'd say you'd need a quality 400-500W PSU. Which is the one I suggested before.

Here's a cheaper one but also a quality brand:
Newegg.com - CORSAIR CMPSU-400CX 400W ATX12V V2.2 80 PLUS Certified Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply - Power Supplies

FYI trailrider, Newegg offers free financing for 12 months on purchases over $500.

Just food for thought...
