i5 vs i7, nVidia GeForce GTX 960 vs 1060
I know many of you know your hardware, so question: My old man is again considering replacing is PoS Vista system he bought in early 2009.
If all goes well, he might actually look into buying something in a week or two, and I want to encourage this.
My major questions right now are in the subject title: the big difference between the i5 and i7 processors, and the 960 and 1060 GTX nVidia cards.
For example, and i5 6600 3.3 Ghz vs an i7 6700 @ 3.4 Ghz, is it worth it to move to an i7? Keep in mind, he'll likely look to keep the system for 5 years plus.
Same with the graphics cards, as a better number doesn't necessarily mean a better card. I've seen 960's listed for higher than 1060's, so is the 960 actually a superior card, more or less?
