Asus,MSI,Gigabyte Prefered , I thought of getting H170 chipset for i5 6600. I heard B150 mobo is worth for non K i5 but H170 has some advantages i think.
Does pro gaming has any advantage on gaming?
My budget is 130$.
Please Help

All 4 major brands are relatively equal. All of them have had their flops over the years.

Once you start to get close to $100, you start finding superior Z170 boards.

So Instead of Asus Gaming Pro and MSI Gaming Pro , gigabyte gaming 3 will be better?
does these two have any advantages over Gigabyte?

My dealer Said Asus is best like they got extra features, good bios better build quality and asrock is unavailable he is saying.
What is your opinion about these 4 brands which is superior.
My current board is asus and it is almost 7 years old.
i got experience only on asus.

Thanks a lot
Can u clarify me some things
When i searched in asus and msi sites.
The gaming pro H170 has some advantage on gaming and some extra feature, extra security protection so are these all marketing techniques?
The price of these boards are not worth to pay?
When we compare a normal ATX H170 vs the expensive ATX H170 what do i get extra .

Please help
iam asking u this because lack of my knowledge

The more expensive H170 boards usually have more ports/connectivity, better audio, and a better BIOS. That doesn't mean that the cheaper H170 boards are lacking. They are still a huge step up from a H110 board.

Most of it is just marketing fluff though.
