So I've finally managed to narrow it down to two motherboards, since they fit my budget and have the most features. The problem is, both are almost the same price, and I can't tell for sure which one has the better value. The G1 Sniper has a special audio chip apparently, but I can always add another PCI sound card. It seems like it lacks M.2 and SATA Express, and has less SATA III ports. To me, it seems like the Gaming 7 has the most features while being $2 cheaper. Am I missing something that's special about the G1 Sniper or am I really right about the Gaming 7 being better? Stuff like good capacitors, longetivity, features, and such matter to me. So please, tell me which is the better motherboard. In case it matters, my CPU will be an i7 4790k and you can't deny it will be a major upgrade for gaming and video editing from using a crappy AMD A10 5800k CPU.
Thanks in advance.

Alright, thanks! The Gaming 7 is $2 cheaper on Newegg and they decided to be nice and gave me a code that's only for my account for a 10% discount on anything I get, although the max discount is only $20 xD
