Not fully clear.. Do you mean to ask if boards by other manufacturers are better compared to Intel original boards on the same platform.?

I think the OP is referring to H55/57 or P55 boards.
P55 boards are generally full featured have xfire and sli support and have better memory bandwith and best suited for i5 655k,750,760 and i7 800's.
H55/57 boards pair well with i3 and i5 cpu's.
It really comes down to what your needs and uses are as well as budget.

This ASUS P7P55D-E Pro is a very good option for ur needs.

Regarding the newegg links the 1st one is because few months ago Intel release a Pentium socket 1156 (see it here) but since u have an i5-760 u don't need that the mobo support that Intel Pentium CPU.
