I was wondering which of these would be better: i5 and 1070 8gb or i7 and 1060 3gb?

I feel like the i5 one would be better, don't know why, but I just do In other words, what is more important for gaming, a graphics card or a processor?

It depends on the resolution and refresh rate of your monitor combined with the games that you play. More information is needed to answer your question.

I play fifa, gears of war, uncharted 4, titanfall, battlefield one, gta v, and MINESWEEPER, and this is a model(extremely) similar to my monitor(I could not find the exact one): http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824160167

After considering the games and resolution/refresh rate I would recommend neither choice. Instead, go for the i5 and 1060.

Cool, i'll think into it, but a 1070 fits my budget and it seems like the better combination out of the two I gave, but thanks for answering!

Definitly the GPU. CPU's dont really change much in terms of gaming performance, the GPU does most of the work.

an i5 6500 and 6600k are almost similar from what I know, would it be good? And would there be a bottleneck with the 1070?
