you don't need an i7. An overclocked i5 will give you the same performance for gaming, and yes, there is a substantial difference between a 1060 (pascal entry level card) and a 1070. Get a 1070 with good cooling like a gigabyte G1 with 3 fans, overclock that bad boy, you will be near 1080 spec, and more ready for higher res gaming and vr etc. going forward.
