Hi guys! I'm building a gaming PC for a pal and he wants the i5 LGA 1151 CPU and GTX 1070 GPU. I read it required 2 slots. I never used a GPU this nice lol. Could you guys recommend compatible MB's around or under $150? Thanks! Is ROG an important spec? I'm not an expert builder but I just came across this spec and it seems needed for good gaming. Necessary? Thanks!

I read the GTX 1070 needs two slots. SO just make sure it has 2 at least for room in teh build?

Awesome! I'm not new to building but I'm also no expert. I'd hate to order these parts and have to return them I had an issue with an MSI board recently and a Ryzen CPU where teh MB BIOS wasn't ready and needed to be flashed...

Now I need a case. Is the GPU chosen specced large or something I need to look for in a case or can I just get a dope cooler master case with pre installed front fans ya think?

Also really cool to meet you. You play SWTOR or Secret World by chance? Lol.
 

Nah, I don't play either of those (don't really game much altogether these days), but thanks!
