hey guys i'm planning out a rig for my nephew this Christmas. my first inclination was to just get the Ryzen 5 1600 and call it a day. but he has gotten into esports (instead of Magic: the gathering) with his friends and is apparently very good at overwatch. we all know flash based games don't count but he's good at those as well. he is 24. i know for what i described Ryzen is just fine. but apparently since getting a job at a gaming store he's becoming more refined and more exposed to pcmasterrace. sooo... he likes fps games and the price of 100Hz+ monitors is dirt cheap at 24" and with the gtx 1070ti coming out for Christmas, the price on the old vanilla 1070 should drop a bit so 1440p is feasible. so with all that in mind what do you think? Coffee Lake I-5 or Ryzen 5 1600? the real limitation is supply and price of itx mobos especially if Coffee Lake. i really would have the money put into the gpu like a 1070 just because i know it will last longer in his affection than the 1060 - where i'd have to go with Coffee Lake plus chipset.
