If you need more m.2 storage than what current motherboards support, or more add-in cards then wait for 7th gen and z270 boards with the extra 4 lanes.

 

If not just grab 6th gen. The performance Delta between them is nothing special.

No, Kaby-Lake is no faster than Skylake, but I would still wait till January, since Skylake prices will drop. Or you could pick up zen.

If you're on a budget, you might want to wait for Zen, or at least the announcement coming up soon.  That is unless you already have the motherboard.

Kaby Lake is about 5% faster out of box than Skylake... And has extra overclock headroom... It's not faster clock for clock, but it *is* faster.

I was referring to real world experience, I know that Kaby-Lake is a bit faster theoreticaly, but you won't notice ANY real world difference.
