Matrix Cube or Dark Energy Surge?

I'm a merc dps, I have about 1750 endurance and aim. My matrix cube is +58 aim +50 endurance and +24 CR

The Dark energy surge is +77 endurance, 30% chance to deal extra 168 damage every 4.5 seconds, and shares this limit with other damage dealing effects.

I currently have equipped the matrix cube and Energy surge device, which is 30% chance to deal 224 damage every 4.5 seconds and shares too.

Would I deal more dps if I kept the matrix cube or replaced it with the dark enery surge?

Always use your matrix cube.

Care to explain why you should always use your matrix cube? what about other relics that have higher stats?

Assuming you are arsenal spec, armor piercing cylinder means you should use energy/kinetic relic instead of internal/elemental anyway.

Am I mistaken then? I thought I saw some PVE relics with better stats on the PVE vendors while comparing equipment.
