  1. What is the total budget? Living in US? Major usage?
    If only gaming, I5-8600k is a better buy than 7700k due to similar gaming performance but better upgrade path.
    GTX 1060 6gb is very good for 1080p 60-75 Hz monitor.
    G2 is very good psu, so you are covered there.
  2. If ur only gaming try a 8600K with a z seris board like an Asus Prime Z370-A plus a 1070.
    Can we knw wt res ur gaming at ? And ur PSU as well.
  3. under a £1000 The I5-8600k requires a 300series chipset prefer i7 tbh.
    1070 to much really expensive.
    Do a lot of gaming, music production, internet, media etc

    Resolution atm with my gtx 750ti is at 1360x768 @60hz

    psu is evga g2 supernova 650w
  4. You can get a I5-8600K bundle with 16gb ram, cooler and motherboard for £589.95
    https://www.amazon.co.uk/ADMI-COMPONENT-BUNDLE-Overclocked-Motherboard/dp/B077B58D5M/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1518203142&sr=8-1&keywords=i5-8600k+bundle
    That will be less expensive than a i7-7700k bundle, and the 8600K is a better gamer and an equal multithread processor.

    Graphics cards are overpriced now because of mining.
    GTX1060 is a very good upgrade in graphics card capability.
    The 3gb cards are cheaper, under £300.
    The 6gb cards have more cuda cores and are stronger, costing more like £330

    I5 and I7 has little diff in gaming. I7 is more for productivity work.
