Which motherboard is better?

Which motherboard is better? I am building a Mini-Itx gaming computer, these are the parts: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/17GIA

I will be playing games like Skyrim, Tera, and Tomb Raider. I don't know if I should keep my motherboard, the Asus P8H77-I Mini ITX LGA1155, or if I should change it to the GIGABYTE GA-H77N-WIFI LGA 1155 Intel H77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0, located here:

I mean, I will be playing some MMOs, so I need a good wireless internet card thingy, and I trust an internal wireless card rather than a flash drive. What should I do?

  1. I pick Asus. You can pick out a PCIe wireless card instead of a USB one.
  2. No , get the ASUS , they have better support and warranty.

    Can you recommend a wireless card? Or will this work for MMO gaming?

    I'd prefer not to spend over $20.

  5. Haven't heard one lately.....LOL ^
  6. Don't get a PCI-E WIFI module. ITX boards only has 1 PCI-E slot, putting that wifi module in means playing games with IGP only. I prefer the Gigabyte board more due to better board layout ( sata ports placement on P8H77-I is pure crisis ), plus it's cheaper than the P8H77 I at the moment. Those and the integrated wifi module with long antennas make it the clear winner.
