I plan to put together a computer that will have the i5 6500, and the Asus GTX 1070 Strix. I am not interested in overclocking, not interested in SLI, and I plan to game on 1080p for now, and then upgrade to 4k in a few years once prices drop and gpu technology catches up to handle it. I just want to game with excellent video and sound quality, but I don't know if motherboards affect those in any way.
I'd rather not spend more money than necessary, as I'd like to invest that money in other computer parts, but would also like a reliable motherboard that will meet my needs.
Can someone recommend me a motherboard for what I may be looking for?
This is my current build. One of my concerns also is that the GPU I selected is rather large, would I be able to get a proper size micro atx motherboard to pair with it while fitting in that selected case? http://pcpartpicker.com/list/H3X4d6
