Default Deciding on what MB.

Got the upgrade bug and my dad needs a new work computer to replace his laptop, so im making him one using my old mb, cpu, and ram, then getting my self some new stuff

im going 6600k for the cpu
Thinking about this
GIGABYTE G1 Gaming GA-Z170X-Gaming 7 (rev. 1.0) LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard -
I like the layout, color, and leds plus the rebate is nice..

and maybe
ASUS ROG MAXIMUS VIII HERO LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 USB 3.0 ATX Intel Gaming Motherboard -

but its kinda expensive and the gigabyte looks better with my theme.

Any thoughts on either of these? i think they have pretty much the same features (the ones i would use at least) Or maybe should i just build my dad a new full system and wait on the upgrade for some more boards to come out with the new cpus idk? im totally new to intel so bare with me

Phenom II x4 40 BE - 3.6Ghz
Asus M4A89GTD Pro Usb3 - 6Gb/sec
Mushkin Blackline 8GB @1800
NZXT Kraken x61
840 Samsung x2
24'' Dell G2410
Windows 10
