Is the B150 perfect?

Oh so the 8 lanes will be availabe totally for the devices i insert in the pci-e slots?

If I remember correctly, yes. It's PCIe devices and M.2 devices

Hey all, i am planning to get a B150 chipset motherboard, look up on ark i found that it has a max 8 pci-e lanes and with skylake providing 16 lanes, so my my question was will it be okay to install a graphic card in x16 slot and a wifi card in x4 slot, will they functionn at their optimum speeds?

What mobo and what CPU are you looking to get?

The Chipset will provide an additional 8 lanes which the wifi card will use and the CPU will provide 16 lanes to the GPU so you'll be fine.

Oh cool, i was thinking that the 8 lanes from the chipset will be used for internal puposes! mobo: GIGABYTE B150-HD3 DDR3 (rev. 1.0) and CPU: i3-6100

Yah, the CPU provides 16 lanes for the GPU and then the chipset adds more lanes for other stuff, so you're good to go :)

Looks like a good board/CPU combo but if you're looking to shave a little off the budget a H110 could work as well since it should be about the same in terms of lanes provided.

For an i3 6100 you could cheap up some cash going for the h110m ones...
