Cheap build: ¿Quién es más macho? MSI or Gigabyte A68HM motherboard?

I'm ooking to build a sub-$200 system for a parent.
The current candidates are:
MSI A68HM-E33 V2 which is $38.98 after shipping and mail in rebate.

GIGABYTE GA-F2A68HM-H which is $39.99 after shipping with instant coupon.

The boards seem fairly identical although New Egg users rate the Gigabyte higher. Anyone have experience with either board or manufacturer?
I'll even accept alternate suggestions around that price point..

  3. That's two out of two. Anyone have a reason I should buy MSI? Of course ATM it doesn't matter, New Egg is sold out of the Gigabyte boards.
