p8z77 vpro VS Sabertoothz77

New build coming to a close soon, but stuck on Mobo (probably should have been first purchase i know). I will be using it for gaming only so not too much extras that just cost money for nata. i was swaying more towards the Sabertooth but doesnt have wifi (rig will be upstairs away from router) but suppose i could by a wireless network card for 20 - 30.

What do you think mobo wise when looking at the below specs?. (Also OC'ing NOT happening right away but a possiblity)

Case: carbide 500r case (Using noctua nf-12 120mm fans to replace stock)
CPU: i7 2600k
CPU COOLER: corsair h100 cpu cooler (again noctua cooling for radiator, push-pull config)
RAM: corsair veng 16Gb ram (1600Mhz)
PSU: corsair 850w gold
GPU: sapphire 7950 oc
MOBO: Looking between an Asus p8-vpro or a Sabertooth (both z77)
SSD1: 60Gb boot drive
SSD2: 240Gb sdd game storage

I prefer the Sabertooth personally. Higher quality VRM components, military certified testing, 5 year warranty (3 yr w/ Pro), and a ton of customization for system fans. Wifi card/usb is really cheap these days as well.

Not mean to threadjack, but what about comparing the sabertooth to MSI Z77A-GD65, also has higher quality material and military class components.. ?
