is the 1070 worth that much more than a 1060 and again idk about pcs but shouldn't I put some of the money used for the 1070 towards an i7?

you have a 1080p 144Hz monitor. If you get a GTX 1060 a 1080p 60Hz monitor would be enough.

Games don't really profit from the i7 Hyperthreading. A strong GPU is more important.

so I should get an i5 and a 1070? the i5 can handle my gaming purposes right? and the i5 6700k wont bottleneck the 1070?

then take my build and change the i5-6600k to an i7-6700k (100$ more)

It will be the same price as your suggested build then.

http://pcpartpicker.com/list/ZPZYNN I just made another list listening to a comment with the differentiated parts would this be better or worse than that?

  • 39 months ago

Worse

  • That PSU is mediocre; that's an older unit and not as efficient/competitively priced as the newer G2 model
  • That SSD is not only older and doesn't have the VNAND technology the 850 does, but it's also only 120 GB, compared to the 850 EVO 250GB which is only $10 more or the Similar PNY SSD I've chosen.
  • Other than it being red and black, the M5 is just more money for less; the Asus Z170 includes more SATA ports for less cost.
  • Your motherboard supports higher speed RAM 2133 mhz because you have a Z mobo. Typically people go with 2133 because they have a non-overclock able motherboard; if you have no plans to overclock then you can easily save money in parts.

I also want to add - you can easily drop to an i5 if you're simply just gaming and browsing the web.

wouldn't a 1070 go better with a 6700k which like $20 more and I think a little better isn't the 1080 like a bit overkill
