7600K or 7700K to pair with gtx 1060 6gb

3 minutes ago, ZeusXI said:

why spend, what is it? 230$ right now for a 1060? and just save up now and use the iGPU of the 7700k and then you have 230$ less to spend, and 230$ already saved up for the 1080 TI. volta/vega are coming out soon i think (or whatever they are going to release) and prices will drop, so you never know. we might see a 1080 price drop from the 700$ to 500$, and the 1080 TI might do the same thing. so then you arnt trying to save another 500-700$ and just have to save 200-400$ instead. save money

Lol if you can find a 1060 6GB for $230 I'll buy it

 

They are at least like $280-300 right now and even normally are at least $250.

 

After launch RX480 4GBs could be had for $140! Now THAT's a deal

knowing nvidia that should be out by christmas!?

Doubt it. Vega will likely only compete with the 1080 so nVidia will spend extra time milking the 10-series.

1600 if you have a single logic

He's already bought a motherboard though... I'd probably go with the 7700k unless you can find a use for the money you would save from getting a 7600k. Honestly, performance won't be too different, but the 7700k is much more future-proof

by that logic a 1700 or even 1600 is much better

Read again, he already bought the z270 motherboard so ryzen is a no go. I say the 7600k should be fine for now. You can upgrade to a 7700k later if you feel like it.

Buying based on brand is stupid. But if you have to get an Intel CPU, get the 7700K.

It is, but it doesn't seem like the op is going to go to Intel any time soon, so between the two, a 7700k is much more future-proof

Agreed a i5-7600K will be plenty. ESPECIALLY for a GTX 1060. Stick with the 7600k and have a happy gaming system.

OC and 5% better IPC can't make it a better CPU, an i5 is still a 4c/4t CPU.

Dood, an i5 is by no means "futureproof". Get the 7700K if you want a "futureproof" CPU.

it's not about having a heart, it's about getting something better for your money, buy the best product you can for the money.
