Later, upgrade the cpu to a i7 7700 and gpu to ur future needs.
 
Not true. Would suggest you to read more on that topic. Most games still use only 2 cores. Only the latest games started to use 4 cores n above with driver patches. But still, clock speed matters. That's why u see an improvement with an overclocked 7700k/7600k/ryzen

I know for a fact you're talking bs right now. For instance, the difference between i7 7700k stock vs 5GHz, is margin of error territory. i5 7600k vs i7 7700k can be a difference of 50-100% min fps, that's a fact in BF1 for instance. I haven't read this, I've tested it first hand. The Pentium also has huge input lag issues in some titles, and that' because of the core count.
 
u would call a 10fps gain margin of error territory? but thats not the important point. look at any gaming benchmarks, only the cpu intensive games suffer in a pentium. in all other cases, the g4560 is equal or better than a stock 1400.

Yeah, you do that. Basically all mainstream games are cpu intensive in 2017. The extra cores gets rid of the horrible miniums and input lag. On top of that, it has higher max and avgs in essentially all titles.
 
lol, chill out. the difference in max fps between g4560 and 1400 is like <10 fps even in the latest games. but more to the point, the difference in 1400 and 1500X is also about the same. if extra cores alone is sufficient, then 1600 should perform better than 7700k ;)
