I have the Asus P5Q PRO Turbo and can vouch for it's reliability but a motherboard has nothing to do with video editing. That is all the CPU and RAM. But even a single core CPU can do video editing, it just takes a very long time. If you want faster rendering then get a quad core. Go with 2-4GB RAM for a video editing rig, 4GB RAM if you are doing HD video.

They are for two different purposes. One is a Mini-ITX and the other a full ATX motherboard. Mini-ITX are good for small desktops or HTPC systems.

1. As far as onboard video chipsets go, AMD based motherboards offer much better options.

2. Among Intel based mobos, given the current availability, the Nvidia 9300 chipset based boards are your best bet.

3. As pointed out earlier, it is also good to have 3+ GB of system memory for video editing.

All in all, I would still recommend a decent entry-level graphics card for the system.

The first one has more room for expansion. I would go for the first one as there are more potential upgrade options available to it. Installing an add-in graphics card in an ITX case is difficult due to size constraints, but in the first micro-ATX board, it can be a little easier even though you are limited to an extent. It also has four RAM slots and probably runs a little cooler than the ITX motherboard. If this is going to be used as a set-top box, the ITX case may be more practical for space reasons, but the micro-ATX board does allow for more options. However, if you are going to be running this as a performance PC with video editing capabilities, you may want a standard ATX motherboard and mid-ATX case. Even an underpowered Atom CPU can do video editing, it will just take a very, very long time.
