B250 + G4560(?) + 1060 6gb

So I need some assistance here. I understand theres a bottleneck with the g4560. I got a pretty killer deal on an MSI b250m pro vd (brand new for 37 burgers) and now im locked in at *kabylake tops. I just need something that has a little more oomph than a g4560 so that im not bottle necking my 1060 in most titles. If its not obvious im going for budget so the price range is gonna be around 120.

Thanks for the help guys

Used i7 7700's can be found on eBay for as low as $120 if you're patient. On B250, a 7700 is definitely going to be last you the longest before you need to upgrade again.

 

For 2019 and beyond, you're going to want at least 8 threads. If you can't find a 7700 within budget, a 6700 or 7700T are also viable.

Sorry if i wasnt clear but 120 msrp. I was taking into account the used market when i said that. Im ultimately going to buy a cpu for like 50 to 60 dollars. g4560 can be had for less than 50 dollars used. thank you for the reply though :^)

The G4560 will bottleneck the GTX 1060 at times but it should still work out, however if you could afford the i5 6400, 6500, 7400 at very least you'd ensure fully smooth game experience on the latest titles.

There is nothing better than an i3 in the Skylake / Kaby Lake range for $120 MSRP or lower. Those are 2C/4T parts without turbo boost. Even 4C/4T i5 chips are going to be bottlenecking your 1060, which is why I recommend the 4C/8T i7s.

 

If you have to stick to your $120 budget, then either the i3 7100 or 6100 are going to be the max at $117 MSRP.

Up until recently, Hypnotoad (the amazing, spectacular rig in my profile picture) was powered by an i5-6500 and a 6GB GTX 1060. The two parts played very well together, and it made for a balanced, smooth gaming experience at 1080p.

Sincerely,
