PC upgrade for gaming, what do you think of my build?

Hi, I am upgrading my current Asus Z77 Extreme 4 mobo and i5-3570 CPU considering my new GTX 1080 is bottlenecked by the CPU.

What do you think of this combo: - i7-6700K - Asus Z170 Pro Gaming mobo - Corsair vengeance DDR4 2800 CMK16GX4M4A2800C16 16GB (4x4GB) or should I go for DDR4 3200?

Thanks for your help!

No need to go for the faster RAM, that's a good upgrade.

2800 and 3000 are about the same price. 3000 seems like the way to go to me. Also, any reason 4x4 instead of 2x8?
