I would go with whichever one is less expensive as you're going to get the same performance between the two for the most part. I'm not 100% sure where the MSI RMA facility is in Canada, but the Asus one is in the GTA, meaning if you live in the GTA and your card goes, you can mail it OR drop it off, lowering turn around time in getting your card fixed.
