Either should work well for you for what you've shown, not sure what all else you'll be doing..also what freq DRAM are you looking at and what size SSD

Probably a 2133MHz RAM and a 120Gb ssd.

Hehe, nice. That´s pretty much the same build that I ordered 2 days ago.
Only difference is, I went with a Asus Z87 Sabertooth.


But to answer you question: The ROG is a bit more future-proof and - as far as I know - is even more built for OCing.
