I'm an ASUS "fan boy" so take that into account:
the latter is a full ATX motherboard, whereas
the Intel model is a micro-ATX motherboard.

I tend to prefer full ATX motherboards that have
seven (7) expansion slots (the ATX standard).

With a single-slot PCI-E video card, that leaves
plenty of room for future expansion (if that's
important to you). It also affords an opportunity
to create "breathing" space between add-on cards,
to assist with cooling and ventilation e.g. PCI slot coolers.

BUT, "Open Box" items at Newegg may be missing
items like the I/O shield, Support CD, etc. and,
for that reason, we stay away from "Open Box" items.
