Hi guys,

I need to choose between the following desktop rigs (both for the same price):
*I don't have plans on doing overclock and I will use it for CS:GO only (I've heard that this specific game has something to do with specific CPU types in terms of performance difference?)

The game will be played on a 144hz monitor + 1080P (Full HD) resolution.

1)
I7-4820K
GTX1070
16GB RAM
----------------------------
2)
I7-6700K
GTX960
16GB RAM


Will appreciate any help or insights on that, so I will be able to go and pick one of them.

Ken's solution is extremely cost effective. But if OP wants some "future proofness", you may consider a Z370 based board, i5 8400, and GTX 1060 6GB.
