I'm looking into getting a new gaming pc, but I'm not much of a hardware enthusiast. I know what kind of general specs I want to have, but when it comes to details, especially the mainboard, I'm lost with all the kinda same-y, similar price-range motherboards out there. Here are my current planned specs:
-GTX 1070 (not sure which model yet, but I think that shouldn't matter for this)
-Intel i5 6600K
-2x8GB RAM (Model would depend on mainboard, no?)
-3 Harddrives (2 SSD's, 1HDD) and a Blu Ray Drive
further considerations: -I'm not likely going to get into overclocking, but I might upgrade to SLI at a distant point in the future (if that becomes more viable for gaming in the next years).
-I'm not going to try and desperately squeeze the most bang-for-buck out of this computer, but if you recommend something overly expensive I would need good reasoning to consider it.
-The PC is mostly going to be used for gaming, no fancy hobbies that need special considerations.
Question: What motherboard would you recommend for my set up? Why specifically this one? Are there other considerations I haven't thought of yet?
Bonus: What kind of RAM would you get for the motherboard you suggested?
