I've asked here because the specifics are almost identical and the price is very different

With the ranger that is z97 and can upgrade to Broadwell. It is has similar feature to the Maximus VII Hero.
The VI Formula has water cooling options on the heatsink, a shroud, wifi module.

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.

Now that the so-called motherboard "experts" are done posting, let's help you out.

What will you be using this PC for? Are you going to overclock? What are your other components?

You will thank yourself for using an SSD as your system drive, or possibly an SSHD

Yes, i will replace the Seagate 3tb with Kingston SSDNow V300 240GB 7mm + Seagate Barracuda 7200.14 2000GB s Advanced Format . Would it be a good choice?

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
