Romys are by far more common and cheaper. The Yugoslavian is supposed to be more accurate (although being that we're talking AKs, accuracy is very subjective).

It is all up to the kind of shape your yugo is in.

Yugo. far nicer then the romanian, and the parts kits fr the yugos, are becoming increasingly more available.

Erm, if I were you, I'd hold onto both. 20 years later when you're bored, you don't wanna be the guy wishing he hadn't sold off that extra AK to build...

The Yugos have more fidgety crap to play with in their kits. GL sights, etc.
If you get a hold of a 1975 like-new condition Romy kit, IMO it is a better kit than the Yugos. On the rare chance you find a yugo with an unissued bore, hang onto it with your life.

The best kit, IMO is the Hungarian SA85 kit. The Yugo Krinkov (M92) kit is awesome as well, but you will awesomely pay for them. And the Krink does not lend itself well to a CA-OK build, unless you deactivate the gas system, and that's a dang expensive kit to be screwing around with.
