From my knowlage of Gigabyte, they have nice solid boards, but you can't tweak them much and they will prolly not OC too well... But its your choice. I don't know much about the Intel side of things :(

I think either would be a good brand. If they use the same chipset then look at the feature list. See which grabs you most. I know Asus have COP (CPU overheating protection) and some Gigabyte boards do/did have Dual BIOS.
