Thinking on wether to overclock or not

I saw the pricer range between the i5 - 6500 and the i5 - 6600k and its really not that much, but the thing is this is my first build and i want to keep this build below 1000 euros. Would i need to buy another motherboard? Its obvious im going to be needing a cpu cooler though.

Here you go. Managed to bump up the GPU to a 1060 6GB, the case up to an N300 and upgraded the CPU / Mobo to 6600k / z170

Wow i really appreciate the help thank you! I know this is out of the question but im going to be buying a BenQ GL2450HM 24.0" 60Hz Monitor at first but im thinking of buying a secondary monitor later on. Is there any monitor you have in mind that you would recommend? (either 120hz and 144hz)

I'm doing something very similar, I'm using my current 1080p60hz monitor as a single monitor for a while, and then probably in a few years I'll use this one as a second monitor and get a 144hz monitor as my main.

Any of these should do you good depending on your price range
