I5 if your doing some serious gaming,save some money and purchase the 3gb version of the gtx 1060,from what I've read its a difference of 10fps

The 1060 3GB and 6GB actually have different processing features on board but in the real world you're not looking at a great leap in framerate.

At 1080p 3GB of VRAM should be enough, only a few PC games will probably exceed this but these are at crazy settings which go beyond ultra any way.

What kind of resolution are you planning to use with this system?

Well 1080p is what i wanted, i was saying the 6gb because i've found a goood deal like 20 bucks more than the 3gb, but i want to play decently for a few years so it seems nice to me, what do you think menzie?

If your planning to game in 4k then yes the 6gb gtx will perform better and at only 20$ more yes its a bargain,apart from the video card I would not buy an i3

If it's only $20 more then go for the larger VRAM.

My current machine has 4GB of VRAM and so far only Battlefield 4 has used all of it at 1080p.

The extra will leave you some headroom in the future as video memory requirements increase.

Thanks guys, you helped me a lot!!

All are perfect but I think you should build 144Hz monitor. It is more suitable for gaming purposes.
