What I'm attempting to decide now is: Is it better to go with that GTX 1060 and the i5-6600K or go with a GTX 1070 and a stock i5-6500?
Of course, I'll be gaming on a regular, 60Hz 1080p monitor, with no real urgency to move to a 144Hz monitor or a 1440p monitor. I want to be able to max out the latest games (like Gears of War 4 and Battlefield 1) with every setting!
Let me know what you think and thank you for your thoughts!
