if you can spend $900 some why not get the Ryzen with a 1070?

[im not actually building it, just seeing which has better value as a built system.

definitely the second one. try the R7 Performance RAM, that stuff is value. I'm pretty sure that the 1060 3gb is better value tho. the 6gb is going to perform better. still good value. also, an SSD is a must.

this isnt a build for irl, just to see if ryzen or coffee lake is worth it as a system. sshd is plenty for some people and 6gb is cause even number

In terms of Absolute Value, get like a pentium G4560, a 1060 3gb, a 1TB SSHD, some cheap z270 or b250 mobo. a single 8 gig stick of R7 performance RAM, cheap case, the 20.00 seasonic PSU
