I think that your best bet of the two is Nagios. I would also take a look
a CA Nimsoft Monitor Freemium. This will have more OOTB functionality for
you sir.

ZABBIX ... of course :)
We are working with this wonderful monitoring tool since 2008

ZABBIX ... of course :)
We have been working with this wonderful monitoring tool since 2007 (before we had used Nagios, Openview, Whatsup, Hobbitmon, etc) and until now we haven't seen any limitations in our projects.
If you need to learn a little bit more about 'how to customize ZABBIX' you can search about:

- ZABBIX UserParameters;
- ZABBIX pluggable modules;
- ZABBIX LLD;
- ZABBIX API;

I think this things will help a lot to know how to extend/customize ZABBIX.
