GTX 1050 Ti + (i5 7400 || i5 7600) Need help for my very first build!

Hello there folks! So here I'm debating between these two processors for my very first rig. I'm not crazy about overclocking or playing at 4k, nor I'll be doing edition or those kind of processor-intensive tasks. Here in Mexico, the 7400 is $1000 pesos (about $50 USD) cheaper, although it's base clock frequency is 3 GHz (comparing to the 3.5 GHz of the 7600). Are the extra 500 MHz of the 7600 really worth it? Would it affect gaming dramatically?
My budget is not soooo limited, but I'd like to get the most of every penny here :)

  1. Personally I would go with the i5 7600. Most games are single threaded which means that for the best performance you want the highest possible clock speed that your budget will allow. Most builds I have seen either go with the 7600 or the 7600k so I think it's worth it especially if you're able to fit it in your budget
  2. If you're budget isn't very limited, I would go with the 7600. It will perform better than the 7400, but not dramatically. Then again, there's always the i5 7500 which performs very good for the price you pay.

    Save the 50$, for the gtx 1050ti both cps are more then enough, you wont see any performance difference since the gpu will be the limited factor always. Only with higher end gpus you might see a difference and even then it depends on the game and would probably only 5 fps anyway. Save the bucks and get the i5 7400, its a very good processor :)

    Maybe put the 50$ towards a better gpu? Like a rx470/480 or gtx 1060? Would give better performance than a gtx 1050 ti.
