Don't even have to look at the boards (although I did) but I would personally go with ASUS.
Gigabite was mildly overpriced and had a little "extra" that you may not need. (2 LANs which is great and all.....but I'd rather have one 10/100 LAN and spare the extra 10/100, buy a 10/100/1000 card) (also 2 COMs?!?! come on......LOL)
