Either mobo should serve your purpose. Unless there are other factors involved I'd go with the Deluxe.

Now there are several caveats: the Rev has built in PCIE 16 X 16 (for two cards) and is the better mobo for multiple monitors. The Rev also has the dual LAN for increases in internet bandwidth.

The Deluxe has bluetooth built in.

If you're SLIing several monitors the video bandwidth may make a difference. But if you don't intend to go to a multiple monitor system then the Deluxe is just as good.

It's your choice, both are quality mobos. Now go out there and build.
