Le Creuset 6-3/4 qt. wide round or 7-1/4 qt. round Dutch Ovens

Title says it all. I am torn between these two. I will be making chili, stew, jambalaya and pasta so that's where I lean towards the 7-1/4 because it's taller and made for dishes like this, but I also will be making some whole cut-up chicken along with pork chops, maybe a small pork or beef roast and whatever other recipes I come across. I am leaning slightly more towards the 6-3/4 one, because it will be much easier to cook chicken, brown ground beef, etc. and I can still cook stew and pasta in it, although it's probably not the ideal pot for pasta, being wider and shallower. I will be cooking an equal amount of all the foods I mentioned so I won't be using one pot more than the other (if I owned both).

I need a bigger one because I bought a 5.5 qt. but sold it because the chili I made almost came to the top and the chicken dish I made I had to do in batches and stack them because of the lack of floor space.

Can anyone help push me over either side of the fence?

Thanks!!
Ed
