    Hello, i'm building a rig for my living room.
    I have a 1070 gtx sitting waiting for it, my current TV is 55" FHD, not seeing an upgrade for the TV anytime soon.

    I also have a z170 board available, so the question is, should i get the i3-7350k or an i5?
    i want to play 60fps smooth at 1080p, Thanks for any advice!

    i5 minimum.
    I upgraded from a 6600K to a 6700K because I was still being CPU limited at 1080p 60Hz with a 4.7GHz overclock!!
    I wouldnt go less than 4 real cores.
