R5 1600 vs i7 7700 (non k)

Hello,

My current setup is

Msi h110m pro-d
I3 6100
16gb ram 2133mhz
Gigabyte rx 480 8gb
Mx300 525gb ssd
1tb wd blue

I was wondering what would be a better upgrade. A r5 1600 (new mobo and cpu for about 300 euro's)
Or a i7 7700 (non k) with my current mobo (also 300 euro's).

I mostly play pretty demanding titles like bf1.

Thanks in forward!

PS. English is not my native language so sorry for my bad english.

    The higher single threaded performance of intel chips like the one you are looking at will be beneficial to more intensive games because despite having the technology for more than a decade developers still optimize their games for dual core machines. IE only using one cpu core in many cases.

    Plus getting an i7 7700is a cheaper upgrade since it uses the same socket and will work in your current motherboard
