Question Maximus VI Hero vs GA-Z87X-UD4H

Hey guys,
At Christmas im planning to upgrade my current PC, with a CPU (4770k), motherboard, RAM (Corsair Vengeance Pro Red - 1600Mhz) and a case (Fractal R4 White window) buti'm not sure which motherboard to get. I'm leaning towards the HERO seeing as I've used Asus boards in the past and I'm mostly going to be gaming. I can get the UD4H at aria for £160 and the HERO for £166, also at Aria. Which one would you guys go with for gaming, as well as a little rendering, 3D editing and programming?

Thanks, ~Alex.

Maximus 6 Hero.
I think in global ROG make better boards than GIGABYTE.
Softwares are better, probably and voltage are more stable, more settings.
People love that different ROG softwares, I don't know between ASUS and GIGABYTE I have more confidence in ASUS hardware.
That doesn't mean all ASUS boards are better than any GIGABYTE.
But last 5 years ASUS is motherboard leader.

Look only Rampage 4 Extreme, I think that motherboard and 4770K to install inside will boot up.
That's biggest mistake probably in my life because I didn't start with 3930K immediately in October/November 2011. I would laugh to this Haswell comedy and upgrade on IB-E for 150$. Second mistake is when I bought ASUS GTX580 DirectCU II instead of
580 Classified monster.
Intel® i7-3770K (4.5GHz) + CORSAIR H100
