On a purely personal level i think the DG35EC is the better of the two.
I have an Intel DX38BT that i installed last week and am very happy with it but it is not the cheapest on the market.

I personally would go with the P5Q board on warranty alone, most ASUS boards have a 3 yr warranty.

I also like the ability to adjust settings, that you won't be able to with the Intel board
