Wrong mobo for Kaby Lake. As you are not getting K-series and wont be OC at all. D-14 and DDR4-3000 ram is useless.
You would need a Z270 and I5-7600k to make it worth it what you have.
Also 3gb GTX1060 is not a good purchase in this build.

Oops, meant the 7600K.

That board should support Kaby Lake with a BIOS update. The only reason why I'm choosing it is for its price and digital audio output. It's not easy to find Z series boards with simple SP/DIF outputs under $200.

Going with the ASUS TUF Z270 MARK 2 since I don't have a Skylake CPU lying around. Even pricematched, it's still pretty steep.

Z270 is built for Kaby.
Then only other change is the GPU if you are gaming.
