Intel CPU Upgrade - From i3 to i5 or i7 for gaming?

I just upgraded my GPU from an ASUS Radeon RX 460 2GB Dual OC to a Gigabyte GTX 1060 6GB AORUS Xtreme Edition. I'm looking at upgrading my CPU to compliment the 1060 and after some advice as to whether to go i5 or i7.
Any and all assistance is appreciated!

Full current setup is:
CPU - i3-7100 3.9Ghz
Mobo - Asus PRIME B250M-K Micro ATX LGA1151
RAM - 8Gb DDR4-2133
PSU - EVGA 430W 80+
GPU - GTX 1060 6Gb
Storage - Plextor M7V 256Gb SSD & WD Blue 1Tb HDD
