Is this too over the top.

Opinions and comments will be gratefully received.

If budget is a constraint, it might be better to get a Skylake-H CPU like the Xeon E3-1220 V5 which will allow DDR4 RAM and an H170 motherboard. Will you be using CUDA or OpenCL?

I can spend a few more pennies if needed, I will be going cuda.

Will I get better performance ?

If i had to say, i'd say its the same performance if not slightly better. The 470 is stronger that the 1050 TI, but if you have more money the gtx 1060 or RX 480 are worth the extra price
