Really I wouldnt go with either since they dont feature pci-e and pci-e would be the way to go since agp slot gfx cards dont have much of a future left.

I'm not really worried about fancy graphics to be honest. I'm not a PC gamer.

I've got a decent GFX card which supports dual monitors so I don't need a new one all that much.

asus probably has the best reputation in the industry behind intel and most of their products are priced pretty competitively.
