Noob questions: DD-WRT on AC1450 vs. R6300v2

I have an AC1450. They say it can be turned into a R6300 v2 with a couple of fairly simple steps. But is it necessary or important to do that? Or should it work just as well to install the DD-WRT firmware over the latest Netgear firmware for the AC1450?

Thanks for any replies.
