If your just gaming youll be fine, it may not be as good as a 8700k or 9900k, but its pure gaming performance should be adequete. 

a i5 4440 compared to a 8600k how much performance in fps do i lose? would you know?

A ton. If you're getting stuttering frames then you probably have a bottleneck going on, feel free to see if your CPU usage is pinned at 100% in task manager. An i7 4770 would make an adequate upgrade.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

i was testing out temps are good usage is about 50% on games with 1070 and probs 80-100 on cpu on fortnite all epic settings he gets around 80-100 csgo max settings 100-200 i feel like the fps jumps alot but maybe not it might just be cpu bottleneck

It is probably a CPU bottleneck. Fortnite and CSGO are pretty poor games to benchmark to know for sure though.

it probably is but maybe i just think the fps is bad because my persona rig is 1080 with 8700k or maybe it actually is a bottleneck but who knows

a 1080 with a 8700k is far faster than a 4440 with a 1070, especially in CPU performance.
