Ryzen 5 1600 GTX 1060 vs I7 4790 GTX 970

I recently got a craigslist offer. I can sell my ASUS rog laptop for $600 and get a ryzen build listed on the title, or accept the trade offer and get an i7 GTX 970.

I want to play PUBG, GTA V, WATCHDOGS 2, etc. main titles. (Bf1, starwars battlefront 2)
I also want to stream these games.
I do After Effects editing (I'm a beginner, so nothing to serious.)
I also do music production but both CPUs should be fine.

Which should I get?

  1. Go with the newer hardware.
    Make sure you get the 6GB 1060 if you're determined to go 1060.
    The i7 4790 is less ipc than Ryzen 5 1600 and the GTX 970 is about 10% slower than the GTX 1060 6GB and 2% slower than the 3GB version.
    I would always go with newer hardware if the price is the same.

  2. Yeah, thanks. I decided to stop the offer. Also, do you think a ryzen 5 1600 (6 core) could be better than the i5 7400 based off the stuff I do? I can sell my laptop for $600 and get the ryzen/i5. Unless I wait for someone to offer $700 (very unlikely, however, my listing is the cheapest there is that has the best specs). I could get a ryzen 7/i7 with $700 but like I said, it's very unlikely for someone to pay that much for a 960m when there are gtx 1060s in laptops.
