I have a Dell Optiplex 7060 SFF (the small one) that I'm using for low-end gaming. It's got an i5-8500, 2*8GB 2666 MHz CL19 RAM, a 256GB M.2 SSD and a GT 1030. I'm looking to put everything in a new case as the GPU gets toasty in there. Temps are okay but it's loud af. Having used AMD only in the past couple years the Socket 1151 chipsets confuse me. I wanna go ultra budget but need that M.2 slot. Which chipset should I pick and which board preferrably mATX would you recommend?
 
TBH any B or H chipset motherboard that supports the features @ price that you want to pay. IIRC you will be looking for 300 series.
An i5 that can't be overclocked shouldn't pose any issue to the VRM of even a budget choice motherboard.
