So everything here, minus the CPU (which is currently a i5 6600k) is what is in my current build. I'm looking to upgrade my CPU so i get a little more performance while streaming and gaming on my PC. According to PC Part Picker, is says everything should work, but then at the bottom of the part's list, it says the following:

"Some Intel B150 chipset motherboards may need a BIOS update prior to using Kaby Lake-S CPUs. Upgrading the BIOS may require a different CPU that is supported by older BIOS revisions."

So does that mean the CPU and my current motherboard won't work together? Or do I have to get a whole new motherboard as well? Thanks for any help in advance!!

You may need to update the bios to the latest verdion if its not the latest to support the kabylake processor .It will work fine
Also Coffeelake releases on oct 5 so wait and decide

I'm sorry, what does Coffeelake mean? Not very smart when it comes to CPU's. Would you recommend waiting for the "Coffeelake"?
