Which Mother Board for LGA 1156

Hey guys I won two mother boards on eBay and I couldn't get out of one of them so now I have to figure out which one I keep. One is an Asus, the other is an eVGA. They are supposed to work, but I kind of have to sell one of them and my old AM3 board to pay for some of the CPU I am going to get, so I can't test either on, but anyways, here they are.

Asus P7P55D Deluxe

eVGA 132-LF-E655-KR

I am kind of leaning towards the Asus since my AM3 board was an Asus and I always liked it, despite how fickle it was. Plus it has more features, which I may or may not need. I plan on getting the Core i7 870 since its like 230 at Micro Center.
