Need a Motherboard for a build

This build will be used for recreational, video editing, music production and gaming. I want to be able to SLI 2 cards with enough room for a wifi card and sound card. I wanted to use the Gigabyte G1.SNIPER Z5S or Asus MAXIMUS VI FORMULA. Is there a better motherboard or are one of those good?

Those are more than enough for what you need. Unless you're actually going to use all the features on those, I'd get something cheaper.

do you mean like cooling the chipset and everything or what do you mean?

No like all the extra features on those boards, such as the crosschill on the Formula, for example. I don't know all of the extra features on those boards off the top of my head, but the Formula will perform the same as the Hero, or even another non-ROG board, if you're not using all the features that the Formula has
