Pretty decent price, but I've got that motherboard and it sure as hell doesn't have onboard video!!!

/edit
Wouldn't be my first choice for a boot drive either, but it'll do the job
No DVD drive as well...

I think while both might be bargains, they are completely different beasts. Its like comparing a bargain Micra with a bargain Ferrari 350GT

That i7 is one of the fastest available and many times faster than the E5500.

So it's probably more like fast gamer vs basic allrounder.

You could put a Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro rev 2 Heatpipe CPU Cooler on it for Approx 20 - 25 euro. I believe they are very quite.
