Time for a delayed for too long upgrade

So it has been a long time since i last bothered with an upgrade(since 2011),my poor system is an i5 3330 with a gigabyte 7870 and 8 gigs of ram.

Served me well for 5 years for fps's like bf4,most mmos and some single players (rpgs mostly).

Since i can afford again (for my pleasure amd not for the soon to b wife :P) wanted to ask you guys what you would suggest in the 600-700 budget,i m asking bout cpu,mobo,ram n gpu

With some researching i started to look towards 1060 with an i7 7700k and 16 gigs of ram but reading more n more (like the need of a good cooler) i started exceeding my budget.

So is it possible to fit something decent in that budget or should i downgrade a bit,mind you i dont plan to oc anything just wud like the raw power of that cpu.

    Due to the still jacked up prices of the low to mid end gpus, it's difficult to suggest anything Intel with your current budget.

    Slightly different version of about the same build 98% of the performance for a bit cheaper.
