I know I didn't mentioned other things.

  1. Solid, but i5 7600 is way too expensive atm. Either you stick with Intel and wait until coffee lake comes out in a week. Or try Ryzen series which is best bang for the money atm. Can provide a full build if going for Ryzen? Do you have some components already?
  2. Agree, the current i5's don't look a good investment and the i3's out in a week will be on the same level of 4 core CPU's. Either wait or go Ryzen.
  3. I forgot to mention that I don't want any AMD CPUs and gpus
  4. See if you dont prefer amd, then you are stuck with i5 7600 because although coffeelake chips are gonna launch this october and are better investment than 7th gen but the motherboards thats gonna be released alongside are z370 motherboards only which will be quite expensive. So, if you are looking for a budget build and want a coffeelake cpu, then you will have to wait till november end or december when maybe the h370 or b350 mobos are gonna launch but again the release dates for these mobos aren't out yet and those are speculations.
    the i5 7600 wont be a bad investment if you are only looking at intel products and want a pc right now.
  5. But coffeelake processors requires separate chipset and I have a doubt......are i5 processors are not good I mean i5 7600 is good as its turbo frequency is 4.1ghz with base clock of 3.5

    Dont worry,the i5 7600 is a good cpu.
  7. Even Intel are admitting 4 cores only is entry level. The current i5's are the equivalent of Coffee Lake i3 out in a week.
  8. Is i5 7600 and i5 7600k are further proof for gaming or should I get a coffeelake i5 8700k or 8600k?
  9. Best answer
    I'd wait, its 1 week and you can then make an informed decision. The i5 8600 is a 6 core replacement of the 4 core 7600. That should make it a better long term investment.
