They are pretty much identical boards. The Gigabyte has a slightly better audio chip whereas the Asus has 3.1 ports. The 3.1 ports can come handy more than the slight audio enhancements of the Gigabyte. Also the TUF series is known to be better in VRM cooling. So, the ASUS board should hold a slight edge for you...

What are those 3.1 ports for? I think the gigabyte has them too
