Which motherboard should I get for gaming, MSI or Gigabyte?

Hi,
I'm building a new PC and I've picked all the parts I'm going to use except the motherboard. I'm quite confused between which motherboard to get. I mainly need them for gaming and durability.

Here are the two motherboards I chose to buy but I'm confused which one =
MSI = http://www.msi.com/product/mb/Z97_GAMING_5.html
Gigabyte = http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=4959#ov

The parts I've selected already are =
CPU = Corei5 4570 (I know it's not a CPU for Overclocking)
GPU = Gigabyte GeForce GTX 560 (From my Old PC)
Ram = Corsair Vengeance 8gb Dual Stick.
PSU = RaidMax RX-730SS
Case = ThermalTake Commander MS-1 Snow Edition

According to these parts, which motherboard will give the best optimization for gaming?

  1. Best answer
    Gigabyte Gaming 7 is better.

    - They have pretty much the same audio and NiC solution.

    - Overall board quality is also similar.

    But Gigabyte Gaming 7;

    - Has more sata connectors and usb ports.

    - Has better and more complex VRM.

    It's pretty much the best bang for buck z97 motherboard.
  2. Thanks brother, you helped a lot. :D
