Huh, I7-6700K dated... I still have an I5-2500K with Asus P67 Sabretooth motherboard... And it runs quite well with MSI GTX 1070, which I was fortunate enough to buy before the crypto madness came in... It basically still costs the same as when I bought it, last time I checked. The CPU is probably a little bit of a bottleneck now, though (can't say I feel it in games, I max out almost anything and can still play with 30+FPS on a 1440p monitor (I don't play e-sports so cinematic FPS is good enough for me), so I'm planning to give my electronic buddy a little makeover with a new medium class mobo, maybe an I5-8600K (people say it's as much of a breakthrough as I5-2500K once was and benchmarks seem to confirm that) and faster mem (I have 16GB of some Kingstron DDR3 now). Still, I won't do it earlier than next year so I guess there might be a new generation of CPUs coming from Intel by then - we'll see how it fares. I'm no Intel fanboy, but I basically always had a CPU from them, same as sticking to Nvidia with GPUs, so I doubt I'm going to change that habit now.

Oh, and whoever doesn't have an SSD yet - really, get one, even some low tier one, as long as it comes from a reputable manufacturer (mine's WD). Even if only a small one for the system partition. It really makes a difference in everyday use. Just read a bit on how to reduce its "wear and tear", because as you probably well know, SSDs have, at least theoretically, shorter lifespan that traditional HDs.

Get a Ryzen 2XXX and 16gb ram at least.
An SSD, and gtx 1060 at minimum.
