View markup in MVC 4

In my view, I noticed that their are two different ways to start of my view form.

Here is the first one :  
@using (Html.BeginForm() )
{

}


Or you can just use :
@{



}


Are these two basically equivalent, or is one better than the other?

Hi,

The first one renders the controls inside the  <form>! Basically if you require FORM tag to be rendered, you will use that! It's an HTML Helper for <form> tag!


The Second one is general, to render the general Server Side Code!
