Default Kettle for mash tun

I don't think I can go wrong either way but does anyone have any advice on why I should consider either of these kettles for a new mash tun?

Northern Brewer Megapot 1.2

More Beer Heavy Duty Kettle

I was looking at the more beer one as well. I hate to piggyback but any info on this would be a plus!

For the same price of the More Beer one, you could get a 20 gallon mega pot. The golden rule of always getting bigger than you think you need...

I was thinking the fact that the MoreBeer models come in 8 and 15 was a drawback. For a 5g batch it seems like a 10g kettle should be fine. I have an old 8g kettle that I use for the boil now and it is definitely on small side.
