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

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

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

hi im upgrading my I5 4460, already bought a asus strix Z270F motherboard. will be using my existing graphics card (galax gtx 1060 6gb exoc). i will be gaming mainly, 0 content creation. should i get the 7600K or the 7700K? its about $140 difference here in south africa. thanks

why would you pair a 7700k with a 1060? i would have gone with either a ryzen 1600 +1070/1080 over that any day.  i know you said you got a 1151 mobo, but why would you spend more on your cpu than gpu when games are mostly gpu oriented? minus a few titles

It is, AMD crippled AVX, which lowers power consumption and heat output.

rx 580 is a bit weaker than a gtx 1060 and needs a lot more power, 120 W compared to 185W

actually in a lot of games using DX12 and Vulkan they are either similar or the 580 pushes up. AMD is much better with long term optimization improvements so the 580 will likely be faster in the next few years. Also Freesync and the 8GB of VRAM give the 580 an overall better value when they are at normal prices

nvidia also offers things like shadowplay and all of that jazz which is really neat, also whenever a new AMD line launches people say "well newer drivers are going to increase performance" and a few months later they complain about shitty AMD drivers. This was the case at the r9 290x launch and the rx 480 launch.
