For that many players, the 550's will probably run out of muscle power before VRAM unless you tone the graphics down a LOT. It happened with my 450's, i ran out of VRAM and that was with low-med graphics on a 48-player match. Probably my CPU was greatly bottlenecking as well, but still...
Both are pretty good cards with superb cooling solutions and improved VRM's over stock, the issue would be if you'd like a card take 3 slots off your case (the Asus would), causing to limit or void your future SLIing options. But if you plan to just go single card until Kepler (or until Nvidia releases something worthwhile), you can go with any.
