Need mATX Z170 recommendation using Intel IGP

Motherboards - AnandTech Forums - forums.anandtech.com
Building a new PC with the following parts so far:

LianLi V351 Micro ATX case

i5-6500

16GB GSkill Ripjaws V

Samsung 256GB 850 Pro

mATX board??? - budget >$150, need USB 3.1 and m.2 for future upgrades

This system will be using the onboard Intel 530 IGP - mainly for surfing, streaming 1080P, some bluray playback, future proof for next 5-7 years.

Looked at ASrock Z170M Extreme4 and Gigabyte G1 Gaming GA-Z170MX-Gaming 5, however the Gigabyte limits share memory to only 512MB - does this really matter for my usage? Which board is the best bang for the buck? I may add a videocard in the future when I upgrade to a 4K monitor. Will consider any other board that fits my needs. Thanks!
