Asus Maximus Motherboard comparison
What are the differences between ASUS MAXIMUS VI FORMULA and ASUS MAXIMUS VII RANGER? is the quality really different like the price? (40% more for the Formula)
Depends. If you already got an i5 4670k or i7 4770k. Either board is fine really.
If you want upgradability to Broadwell cpu then the Z97 is confirmed to support it. Z87 hasn't been confirmed if it does or not. However, i doubt there will be much improvement except for overlocking for Broadwell.
If you plans to go water loops in your build the VI Formula is a nice board to have.
It will be a powerful gaming PC, i won't overclock, my components are:

I typically recommend the Samsung 840 EVO as a system drive because of the software that comes with it - Samsung's 'Magician' which doubles the SSDs speed for a high-percentage of operations (my guess is it does this with some sort of clever compression trickery)
My 840 EVO benchmarks at 1134MB/s Reads, 1083MB/s Writes, once Magician is installed and set up
