Any input? Have a decent rig at the moment, but looking for a nice upgrade. Can't really pass up on this if its good. Price is just about right.

I already have storage from my current build. So.. is the CPU Cooler needed if I'm not planning on doing any overclocking? And I'm assuming I'm not going to bottleneck the 1060 with an i-5 right?

Aftermarket CPU cooler isn't needed.

And the i5 and 1060 should play nice together..

Awesome, well, chances are that is what I'm going to roll with then. I appreciate it. I don't quite understand all this 4, 5, 6 gen **** lmao.

No reason to go with a CPU is that two gens old. Also you are missing storage.
