Which cpu/gpu combo should I use

I am building a computer that is looking to play battlefield 1 and H1Z1: KOTK at high at at least 60fps.

Should I get an i3 7100 + GTX 1060 6Gb or an i5 7500 + GTX 1060 3GB

Please tell me which would give me better frame rates.

Thanks.

    The i5 will definitely help in Battlefield 1 (unsure about H1Z1) but i would grab a RX 480 4GB over the GTX 1060 3GB if you can unless you can save a little more to get the GTX 1060 6GB. Heck i'd even grab a 4GB RX 470 over the 3GB variant of the GTX 1060 for many reasons. So try get a i5-7500 + RX 480 4GB if you can it should be very close to the pricing of the 3GB 1060. Hope this helps :)

    Ok thanks, I was sort of edging for the I5 but will the RX 480 really make a difference in fps for the price in comparison of the 1060 3GB, if so can I still get 60 fps with the 1060 3GB

    An i5 7500 + GTX 1060 3GB should indeed give you High 1080p @ 60 FPS in Battlefield 1 but i am not very familiar with H1Z1 performance. But yes the RX 480 4GB will offer performance closer to the 6GB 1060. Heck an i5-7500 and RX 480 should do Battlefield 1 on Ultra 1080p 60 FPS no problem. Here is a video of someone using a RX 480 + older i5 6500 in BF1 Ultra, usually hovering around the high 60's to low 70's. You should be able to do better with the new patches, driver updates and better CPU. > https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YtxuKEbNRrw

    How much is the RX 480 4GB over the 1060 3GB where you are?

    Alright, thank you for all your help, I live in Australia and the price is pretty much the same, forgot that the price was the same, sorry.

    I will look into changing the 1060 3GB to the 480 4GB for my build.

    Again, thank you for all your help with answering my question, I appreciate it. :)
