Sounds like what you will be building is very similiar to my rig when you upgrade as I have the GTX 1080 right now and the i7 6700k. For your budget you could get the motherboard I use, and same case. Its tempered glass and for the extra $20 over the regular nzxt elite it looks great. I added in the other parts as well in this list.
Here is a picture of the motherboard inside the case I am suggesting as well with my rig.

Ok so there are a few different sizes of motherboards. The common few are (smallest to largest) mini ATX, micro ATX, ATX, and EATX. The larger the motherboard is, the more components you can attach but the smaller it is the more modular it is. The one most people use is ATX and it is kind of the standard.
