I will mainly be playing CS, Battlefield, Overwatch, want them to run nice but don't need them to run like at 300fps max setting ya know? Mainly stuck between getting a 1060 or 1070, do I really need the 1070? Planned Build

What display are you planning to use? For 1080p/60hz, a 1060 is more than enough.

2 1080p 60hz monitors, maybe eventually 120hz but not in the near future

That Window key isn't legit. That PSU isn't good and is overpriced. What is your max budget? Do you want to overclock?

I plan on overclocking max budget is $1400 I would say, but I don't really have a budget. I was on debating on the windows but I put the $30 to find out at the least what I'' going to spend on OS, knowing that I'll buy a legit version from Microsoft
