The AAKS has a 16MB Cache, where as the AALS has a 32MB Cache. Get the AALS. Also, get the i3 530, no need for the 540.

looking at the VGA card I'm guessing the person who'll use this PC will never game on it?
Since you still have €100+ left in the budget, I would squeeze in a 40gb/60gb SSD for boot drive; will make a world of difference to the overall experience and snappiness of the system.
