If I were you, I would go with the Asus Z87i Pro. The added daughter board provides a lot more power if you are ever wanting to overclock and the board itself has a lot of great features, even to the point of overclocking your CPU for you. The MSI is a great board too, but I've always found Asus to have great motherboards. (all I've ever used has been Asus boards)

Good luck on your purchase!

I'd also go with the ASUS over the MSI, just hope you don't ever have to deal with their RMA dept. I really love my EVGA z77 stinger bios deficiencies and all. From what I understand EVGA's z87 stinger doesn't have my bios issues
