Build solution: will perform an incremental build. Builds any assemblies which have changed files. If an assembly has no changes, it won't be re-built. Also will not delete any intermediate files.

While

Rebuild solution: will clean and Rebuilds all assemblies regardless of changes but leaves intermediate files.
