They are both budget chips running at about the same speed costing about the same.

The AMD chip, however, has 3 cores. That gives the edge to AMD at stock speeds. And I do not think you can overclock the E7500 enough in a G41 board to make up for the missing core.

a 5770 or 6770 (basically the same card) from amd or a 450/460 from nvidia should balance out nicely with that

Yes,
I'd also look to upping your ram to 4Gb and make sure whichever mobo you get has at least a sb710 chipset, that way you can try unlocking the fourth core on it,
its not guaranteed to work, but its a nice bonus if it does, that first mobo you linked wont do it, the second says it will but its got an nvidia chipset so I'm unsure
I'd say AsRocks m3a770de is a solid choice, I have two in my house and they're great little plates
plus, how much editing do you do and whats your total budget here?
