I created a post here the other day about a machine i had my eyes on, but since then i have switched my attention to pre made gaming machines. Mainly because i won't have to purchase a better PSU and everything else included just to make the computer usable for gaming. https://www.amazon.co.uk/d/ta4/G6-HE42R-82X-Quad-Core-Processor-Motherboard-Operating-Multimedia/B00O12NOZ6/ref=sr_1_29?srs=5207592031&ie=UTF8&qid=1490829368&sr=8-29&keywords=i5+7600k Is this machine any good? Because the Zoostorm one i had my eye on was horrific compared to this and it cost a lot more. The specs for the Zoostorm are : 16GB DDR4 RAM, 3TB HDD 5400 RPM (Very slow), Basic Intel I-7 processor with a 250 PSU. Any advice would be great. Thanks.

I'd personally prefer a 7700K for it's SMT/hyperthreading, as a handful of games perform better because of the hyperthreading, not only the increased cpu clock speed bump. (Granted, with that mainboard, you will not be overclocking....)

 

Unsure of the 460's pricing, or if Nvidia is an option with that builder, but, hard to imagine the GTX1060 being outperformed in that budget range, as some 1060 variants outperform even some RX480 variants at 1440P...

If forced to choose only one of the above, I'd opt for the GPU upgrade, however.


Asus Z270A Prime/7700K/32 GB DDR4-3200/GTX1060

I can't really afford that currently, but i think the processor and graphics card are good enough for semi modern games and old ones from the GTA series.

Ryzen 5 is launched in less than two weeks and it will bring heavy competition within that price range. Waiting is highly recommended.
