Im looking to buy a cpu and my friend is offering me his i5 6500 that he got a year ago for €100.
Will his CPUs performance be worse than if i got a brand new one.

Will a 6500 bottleneck my 1070
Is a i5 7500 a better choice?
 
You would have to get a new motherboard if you plan on purchasing that chip. It's not a bad price for that chip, but when you factor in that you will need a new motherboard and DDR4 ram to go with it, i wouldn't recommend that. I would wait until the cheaper coffee lake motherboards come out early in the new year, pair that with an i5-8400 and 16gb ddr4, if you wanted intel. If you want a cheaper solution now, go with ryzen.
