And another question: Should I go for 4x4gb ram sticks or 2x8gb with this pc? 4x4 looks a lot better in my opinion. But does it affect performance?

Well, I was going to let somebody else answer to avoid a scenario where I give you the wrong one, but it seems as though I have to step in. First off, I don't believe you can OC on a B150 chipset, you need a Z170, so you can save yourself some money by purchasing the the locked 6700. You could also save a few more dollars by getting rid of the CPU cooler, locked CPUs come with a stock one. Or you could upgrade you motherboard to a Z170 chipset if you do plan on OC'ing. You might want to add a HDD for more storage, depends on your needs. As far as RAM, I believe that two of the RAM sticks might run slower, but by a very, very, very small difference due to not being in the A2 or B2 slots, but 4x4 sticks is more reliable and fail-proof in the case that if one dies, you lose 1/4 of your RAM, not 1/2. I'm also not too sure on that PSU, haven't looked into it. Hope this helps, and here are a few builds that I tweaked.

If this is for gaming you would be better off downgrading CPU to an i5-6500/6600 and upgrading the 1060 to a 1070.

A fair argument, here you go.

Also, I switched the case due to the original not having any internal 2.5" bays, so no space for the SSD. Also the 1070 would block off 3.5" bays for HDDs, so I just got this one. If you don't like it just tell me, I'll find something for ya.

There aren't true 2.5" bays but the 3.5" ones have mounts for 2.5" disks on them. The Fractal case will be much nicer I am sure regardless.

Also for $30 more you can get the overclockable version (i5-6600k) and get a Z170 overclocking motherboard for the same price, or less than that B150 like this: MSI Z170 Krait

Though not as pretty THIS would make up for the $30 on the better cpu.

If a color matched build is what you are going for and it doesn't have to be black/red here is a part list. Black/red motherboards are usually more expensive so I was basing this off getting you the best cpu/motherboard combo at the same price and basing the color theme off the motherboard. You obviously have tons of case options.
