OGG or MP3

I have a new computer with  a SSD 256 go. Later i have to buy a external HDD.
But now i can't listen Flac. I have to choose between mp3 or ogg.
i have already done some test. I think ogg is better at q8 (256 kps) than mp3 v0. I can ABX lame V0 on 10-12 songs.
It is a placebo effect or ogg is really better ?

My system:
speakers: Monitor Audio Silver Rs8
ampli: Cambridge Audio Azur 851
dac: Cambridge Audio Dac Magic Plus.

Sorry for my bad english,

With the bitrate range you are thinking of you can seriously consider to use mp3.
Universal usability is mp3's advantage.
If you can ABX lame -V0 on 10 songs your hearing must be excellent. I recently developped a Lame 3.99.5 variant (lame3995o) which has a special quality parameter -Qx which takes special care of those rare samples where standard Lame struggles a little bit.
I'd be pleased if you could try to ABX lame3995o -Q1 (224 kbps on average as with -V1), -Q0.5 (261 kbps on average as with -V0), or -Q0 (317 kbps on average) on your songs. Maybe you will find a setting which totally satisfies you. ;)
lame3995o -Q1.7
opus --bitrate 140
