Go with the i5, will serve you better. If you can spare it, get the i5-6500.

As for the GPUs, thats tricky. I have an RX 480 4gb and it plays all my games 1080p 60fps at ultra quality. However, the 1060 has more power. But with DX12, RX 480 takes the cake. 1gb of Vram wont help much.

Yeah no problemo. You can also get an MSI RX 480 for 199 on amazon right now, cheap and works great. Has good reviews, especially on the temperatures. Wish you luck :)

The i5 6400 win hands down, its not even a contest between the two.

The RX 480 is slightly better than the 3GB GTX 1060.
