CPU vs GPU for gaming

Go to solution Solved by OAcesync,

I was wondering what have a bigger affect on the gaming experience. The following are the choices that I can choose

i5 6600k and GTX 970

i7 6700k and GTX 960

GPU would always generally have bigger impact on gaming and since i5 is little far off the i7 in gaming besides HT, the i5/970 would be better
