Hi,
So i want to upgrade my i5-2500k on asrock p67 pro3 with crosshair 1333mhz cl9.

I was thinking about i5-6600k on asrock z170 extreme4 or gigabyte ga-z170x gaming 3.
I dont know what ram i should take, whether to take 8gb or 16gb, or high hz or low latency.
In few months when the prices settle i also wanna upgrade my msi gtx 960 2gb to gtx 1070 so i dont know which mobo would suit it best.

Rest of my setup:
- OCZ ZT Series 650W fully Modular 80 Plus Bronze
- MSI GeForce GTX 960 GAMING 2GB

I would get the gigabyte board since they're better made and have more features. If you want a really good motherboard go with MSI or Asus. Get 8gb if your just gaming and have a few tacks running at the same time and 16gb if your a heavy multitasker gaming and streaming at the same time and etc. Higher speeds don't give you really any performance boost so go with lower latency since that helps with the rams response time.
