  1. It would be better for you to get a z270 motherboard. You would have to update the bios on a 170 chipset and you would not be able to do it since the 7700k would not work with out the bios update. It would work on a 270 chipset motherboard. Also since the i7 7700k is a overclocking cpu a z motherboard would be what you need. The H170 will not overclock if you so desire to do so in the future.

  3. The 770k is an overclockable CPU, your MoBo selection does not provide support for overclocking. The entry point for overclockable MoBos w/ good gaming sound support (Realtek 1220) has been $130.... that'[s changed for right now so jump on it. Anandtech said of the Z170 version that 'it sets the standard" at $130.
