I'm planning on buying an egpu with thunderbolt 2 and hook it up on my iMac. So, will an i5-5250u bottleneck a Zotac GTX 1060 6gb Mini over Thunderbolt 2? If so will at least play games such as Overwatch, League of legends, Vampyr and Fortnite at 60 fps medium settings or lower? Also I'm using windows through bootcamp.

this CPU performs similar to an i3 2100 (second gen desktop i3), which is OK for these games I suppose, but not something people would pair with the 1060.
if you keep your expectations in check maybe it will work well,
but given the investment ( I think the Thunderbolt enclosure is not cheap at all), I find it questionable compared to simply building a second cheap PC for gaming.

Should be ok for 60fps. That is a 15w CPU iirc. Make sure you get a good deal.
