Default Which motherboard is better?

Hey hey, I'm a noob and I'm a girl. Bear with me.

Which motherboard has a better performance, used primarily for multimedia and high resolution graphic design?

This one:
ECS KT600-A Socket A DDR with an AMD Athlon XP 3400+ CPU
(http://www.partspc.com/store/product2668.html)

Or this one...
QDI KuDoZ 7X/600 Socket A DDR with the same CPU
(http://www.partspc.com/store/product1536.html)

Any opinion would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you so much for replying... I thought I was hopeless! lol

Could you tell me why you think the 2nd one is better? I'm pretty sure the Kudoz doesn't have firewire, and I don't know if the ECS one does or doesn't... it probably doesn't... I know ECS is a more well known company though.

Also, the ECS has a serial ATA, not sure what that's good for but I suppose it's good for something.

I'm probably going to go for the Kudoz, like you mentioned, but just am being picky before I commit to anything.
