Hello Every one.
I want to upgrade my Intel i5 4570 to intel i7 as currently my cpu bottleneck with my zotac 1070 amp extreme edition so i don't know should i go with 7th gen or stick to the 6th gen i7.
 


Unless you have a particular extra need, like sli(which I DO NOT recommend)
or, a favorite brand,
then look for the least expensive Z270 motherboard.
Here is a ASRock Fatal1ty H270M for $99

What resolution and Hz will you be gaming at? Your CPU may or may not be an issue depending on this. If buying now might as well go for the 7700k unless the 6700k is significantly cheaper. The 7700k overclocks a little better and gas a higher stock speed.
 
I would always buy current gen.
The processors and motherboards cost the same, and you get more performance at every price point.
For i7-7700K,
any Z270 based motherboard will allow overclocking and perform about the same.

For a gamer, you may find that a cheaper I5-7600K with an overclock will do just as well.
Few games can use I7 hyperthreads.
