The title says it all. I mostly play games, i don't stream and rarely do some editing. I'm aware that the 1200 is going to bottleneck the system but judging from the benchmarks, it looks like it is still capable of playing most games at ultra 60fps+ no problem. If it does oppose an issue, i'll upgrade the CPU next year anyways. So which one? How long can I play "AAA" games at 1080p medium-ultra 60fps+ until I need to replace with a new one?

Specs:
Ballistix 2x8gb DDR4 2400mhz
EVGA 500bq
B350m Bazooka
Seagate 1TB 7200rpm

The 1070 system will be faster in most games. Both can likely play most AAA titles at 60fps or above. There is no predicting the future, so no update "date" can be given for either one. But, I'd bet that you would enjoy the 1060 system longer since video cards are simpler to replace and are replaced more often.
