It will be a good upgrade coming from i5 2400. However, I recommend upgrading your GPU first to that GTX 1070 you mentioned, THEN you will be in a position to upgrade CPUs. Your current i5 isn't crippling any games at the moment.

It won't bottleneck the GPU. But 6600K would still be the better choice.

I know that 4670K is unlocked for overclocking what i meant is they have the same performance working on default the i5 6600K is the unlocked version and it's better than the i5 4670K on default and the DDR4 is the only advantage over 1150 Sockets there might be a slight performance increase on Skylake but it's not huge

I'd go for the Z170 Progamin version, in case you can later upgrade on the unlocked versions of i5 and i7, where you can clock it as you need.
But yes almst every game should run fine. I noticed "almost NONE" improvement with a i7 6700 over the i5 6600 in games (have in mind the non-K versions i tested with the same system specs just different CPU's)


Cheers!
