    Depends on the cost of the I7... it is still viable and will probably outpreform that I5. get another stick of ram and you will be set for a couple of years

  2. I think you should buy a new combo CPU+RAM+Motherboard. Because your old Asus H81 is not good for i7 CPU, and GTX 1070. K series is not needed.
    Best solution now is Ryzen 5 1600 + Good B350 mother board (Asus ROG Strix, Gigabyte Gaming 3, etc...), and RAM with high bus speed.
    I am using Ryzen 5 1600, Asus ROG Strix B350-F Gaming, Gskill Trident Z 3000. It work very well.
    Another choice, i5-7600 (Non-k) and B250 mother board.
    And, Please buy a good motherboard.

  3. I7 for sure not a good option to buy i5 now, i7 4790k may be 10 to 20% slower than the kaby lake but it's one of the best gaming processor unless u wanna spend more on rysen platform(like 1600)But it can handle 1080p for couple more years until games start using more than 8 cores. The current games uses upto 40 to 70% cpu mostly around 50's. Btw you can overclock 4790k with asus h81 mobo

  7. The I7 scores higher here on the pure cpu performance than the I5 ( about 11000 vs 9200) and it is a good match for a 1070.

    albeit it is purely up to you, you could go for a skylake I7 and a z170 motherboard with DDR 4 ram, just dont regret settling for an I5, like me...

    Don't buy anything at the moment. Their is an announcement on the 21st about the new Intel KabyLake range which includes 6 core i5's & i7's. As long as prices of i5's stay similar you might be able to get 50% more cpu for your money and games are starting to use more than 4 threads.
