i3's as a rule are really bad, low performance and they don't age well. I would go for the i5, and wait a little longer so that I could afford the 1060. 


Have you tried turning it off and on again?

it may vary a little bit from game to game depending on CPU usage in said game, but largely speaking if you're wanting the highest framerates possible with the highest graphical settings possible, the i3 + 1060 is a better gaming rig..... However you could likely save a bunch of money by getting a pentium G4560 instead of that I3, as they're extremely close spec wise but the pentium is significantly cheaper MSRP

All that being said, in this price range you should really be considering Ryzen 5 or waiting for an R3. Maybe even buying a used PC.

Pc's are pre-built, but they are cheap and they both have the same price, that's why I was asking what I shoukd get. Sorry for not saying it in the description of the topic.

Then get the one with the 1060. it will give you higher framerates with higher graphical settings in more games more often when compared against the i5 + 1050

i3's are great... for office purposes.

 

if you want the gaming, you want 4 cores or better ;)

that said, if you want the gaming, you want 8 gigs of ram as well, and ram REALLY isnt that big of a cost.
