i currently have a 1060 6gb which runs most game fine, but often just abit worse than i would like, i currently have a
  • i7-6700K (not overclocked yet)
  • 16gb ddr3 ram
  • 144hz monitor
is upgrading to a 1070/ti or a 2060 okay for this rig. i will upgrade my ram to DDR4 once i get the chance
 
Worth is something only YOU can determine.
Try this simpleminded test:
Run YOUR games, but lower your resolution and eye candy.
If your FPS increases, it indicates that your cpu is strong enough to drive a better graphics configuration.
If your FPS stays the same, you are likely more cpu limited.

A asus B150m pro gaming motherboard does not allow you to overclock your 6700K
My reading says that motherboard already has ddr4 support
Do I have the make/model of your motherboard wrong?
It is a moot point since you would get little benefit from a ddr4 change.
If you want to overclock your 6700K, you can get some 20% better performance with a Z170 or Z270 based motherboard.

If you are graphics limited, by all means go and upgrade.
In time, a overly strong graphics card can be moved to a new cpu/mobo/ram build.

thank you so much man, my cpu is quite strong. the i7-6700k i believe can handle a better graphic card. on low i better.
