Which motherboard should i buy for gaming?

Hey guys
I am going to build a gaming pc so i have decided to go with i7 6700 k and thinking of a good gaming motherboard that would be perfect for my setup. I am thinking of buying msi z170a m7 gaming mobo. I have seen the news of new kabylake and z270 mobos but i think there isnt any major changes in the processor or mobo that i should wait for their release. Please help and should i go with msi z170a m7 or some other company would be good?
Thanks.

    You should start here for building a new computer and we'll help you find all the parts: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/353572-31-build-upgrade-advice

    In my personal opinion, all of your purchases should be to buy the best possible graphics card with the budget you have, up to a GTX 1070.

    For the motherboard, I'd go with an $80 ASRock: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157636&cm_re=asrock_z170-_-13-157-636-_-Product

    But you also should probably wait for AMD's Zen to drop: http://www.autoworldnews.com/articles/25417/20170103/amd-ryzen-price-tiers-specs-release-date-new-amd-processor-can-be-clocked-up-to-5ghz-but-theres-a-catch.htm

    It's release date should be close and should drive down some of the top end CPU prices.
