Coffee lake bottleneck?

I am building my first PC and plan to get the new i5 8600k with an Asus gtx 1060 and game at 1080p on a 144hz monitor. Now im not exactly sure what bottlenecking is but i think i understand it enough. Will my CPU or GPU bottleneck ?

1060 seems the weaker one, but it's not that bad.

GPU will be your bottleneck, but don't worry too much. You may have to lower settings to get 144Hz, though visual quality will still be high.

GPU will be the weaker link. still very good thought for your usage. you don't actually need or want better (because price makes it not so worth). you could go down to the new i3's tho. since they are real 4 cores and the overclockable part will go to 5GHz just like the i5 and i7. and it's essentially a much cheaper i5 from last year kinda. and won't bottleneck your GPU anymore than the i5 for 99% of games

does the i3 come with the 2 extra cores? Even though this is my first build, i would like to have a build to last me a while with small upgrades here and there

the i3 in the new intel lineup are like the i5's were since their introduction. 4 real physical cores no hyperthreading

streaming isn't really recommended at this price point imo. you'll lose allot of FPS no matter what CPU you buy here

What in your opinion would be a good "budget" CPU for both gaming and streaming?

the only "budget" cpu that will do it really is the 1700 but you can't have your cake and eat it too. you are sacrificing gaming performance going this route for streaming (because ryzen is weaker in gaming and has lower clocks, on top of it's other "issues") which, arguably you won't really be doing seriously. so not really worth the price jump in my opinion.

Just stick with the 8600k. It's the best for gaming and should handle streaming well. I don't know why people are trying to talk you into buying a worse cpu (i3).
