    seems fine with a 1060, starts to hold back a 1080gtx at 1080p, 1440p and the g4560 does good again with a 1080gtx but does not unlock its potential

    If this is legit it's not a terrible bottleneck for a 1060 but definitely lose frames, even against a low end i3. Still playable tho and depends on the game:

  3. It really depends on the game. That specific Pentium is basically an i3 and is much stronger than any other Pentium before it. It would be fine most of the time.
  4. Im looking for a budget build mainly. If i can squeeze extra money will the i5-7500 be good with this?
  5. Can you squeeze out the i5 and get an RX 470/480 4GB instead? Might be a good compromise if you're at 1080p.

    It's a perfect match imo. We sometimes get a bit too focused on the balance. In this case, yes the 1060 is slightly better than the G4560 but unless the G4560 is the last CPU you will ever buy the 1060 is a perfect pairing. The 1060 will allow other upgrades to happen and can save money in the long run. It's usually better for the GFX card to slightly outpace the CPU.

    Is that a good pairing? I know Vulkan API's are used in DX12 which is better optimized for Nvidia.

    Actually if ever i'll do an upgrade, i'd leave the 1060 and get an i5-7500 but for now this is the best i can do.

    Thanks! This convinced me, even though some are cpu intensive i dont mind it actually :) i like the affodability of g4560 and future processor upgrade then next a gpu upgrade :)
