I'd very tempted to go with the latter since that's your last name. LaRue is a quality name and quality component and that rollmark will raise eyebrows when you say you built your AR to your specs. That's a big part why I got the Quentin Defense US Army edition stripped lower, why not take advantage of a fortunate coincidence.
(Just talking in general here, not singling anyone out) ... I just don't see a problem kicking in $50 or more for the lower you really want. Why follow the crowd and go for the cheapest plain jane thing under $100 when it is the serialized part, lasts a lifetime and the slight upgrade is a drop in the bucket compared to the overall cost of the rifle - so why not!
The biggest issue with assembling an AR isn't so much getting the parts together right - it's getting the right parts together. You'll remember the quality of a gun long after you forget how much you paid for it.
