What swayed me away from EVGA is that their fan controllers don't work. So my vote is for the Asus.

If your gonna do heavy overclocking (at least 3.8ghz). I would recommend the EVGA board as, from my own experience it overclocks as well, or better then the other x58 boards in it`s price range (Got my i7 920 D0 to 4.35ghz) while looking a lot sexyer :D.

If you plan on doing regular overclocking(3.2-3.6) you could probably make do with a cheaper motherboard like the Gigabyte X58-UD3R and save yourself some money, I don`t know how many bells and whistles you need for your PC, but it sounds like a standard board like the ud3r will meet your needs at a much lower price point.

If your dead set on both these board and plan on mild overclocking - Pick the cheaper one.

Final Note : If you don`t know what SLI is that means you won`t miss out on it as the UD3R does not come with SLI support out of the box (it can be bios flashed to support it)
