Upgrading motherboard! What's the best h270 or b250?

So my current motherboard is failing on me as some USB ports tend to fail and im running a b150m gigabyte micro atx in an full atx case. So I'm looking for some motherboards on Amazon and I'm interested in getting a b250 pro carbon, but there's a tomahawk h270 for 10$ more. Which would be better for gaming/productivity?

I'm running a 6700 i7 non k, so z series won't do much more for me.

Other specs:
Cryorig m9 cooler
RX 480 4gb Asus dual
2 TB HDD
750w power supply HCG Antec

  1. B250 is fine unless you want some specific feature exclusive to the H270 board. Motherboard won't affect performance, so you only need to check compatibility and features. If the B250 has all you need, no reason to spend the extra $10.
