Temporary PC until AMD Zen. Any thoughts?

So I wanted to make a temp PC before AMD Zen, because my current PC will most likely loose a lot of sell value after Zen hits the market. So I'm selling my current one now and getting this. The CPU + Mobo and Ram will be sold off after the upgrade. I know the i3 is an odd choice, but since I'm playing at 4k so I guess the 1070 will be the bottleneck before the CPU. Any thoughts?

I would say go a generation older and get a 1080. If your going to upgrade soon, why have the newest stuff?

Not a dumb idea, but I live in Norway. And the only thing I save money on by going 1150 is the ddr3 vs ddr4 ram. Actually I looked up the price and the i3 4150 costs more than the i3 6100... same with most motherboards.

Also my plan is to go sli down the road and getting another 1070 is easier since I am a student without much disposable income.

Great idea though if I lived in America.
