I want to build a <$1200 gaming build and I really can't decide between the two. What do you guys think?

if you can score an MSI board for under $110 then go for it. it works just fine in my build.

I have a Z87-A. Both are nice. In the past there were issues with some MSI boards shipping without CPU socket covers, but this has been mostly resolved, so I'd just go for whatever is cheapest.
