What motherboard should I choose???

Hi, I am getting a computer at Ibuypower with a gtx 1080 ti, intel core i7-7700k, 16gb of ram, 2 terabytes and 250 ssd. I don't know what motherboard or power supply to choose. There, it show this two motherboards: ASRock Z270M-ITX/AC -- 1x PCIe x16, 6x USB 3.0, 2x USB 2.0, 1x M.2 [Intel Optane Ready] and ASRock FATAL1TY Z270 Gaming-ITX/ac -- 1x PCIe x16, 9x USB 3.0, 1x USB Type-C [Intel Optane Ready], the second one is 67 dollars more expensive. For the power supply. I currently choose the 30900 Watt - In Win Classic Series C900W - 80 PLUS Platinum, Full Modular, but I don't know if that would be too much. And also, another question, when I get the computer which port should I use to connect the computer to the monitor? Thank you guys a lot!!

    Either but I would get the Fata1ity especially if its a windowed case worth the extra ,nice board but at a premium.What little case are you using ?And 900W is way too much you only need a 650 for a single 1080 and that's overkill ,So unless your going SLI or Titan ,Don't waste heaps of money.And the port ,Well use Hdmi if you want sound to the monitor but it wont support 4k but great for 1080 p. And you can use for you Tv as well, but use DVI if your dont need sound and want 4k ,I don't need sound but I just run HDMI because I had one and it works fine and is more universal than DVI. Would like to hear more.good luck
  2. I am using that revolt 2 pro case. And for the power supply, the only other option would be the 800 watt bronze. Is that fine for me? Thank you
  3. Have you considered building your own? More options, saves money.
