trying to build a small gaming system Intel I-5 but getting alot Confusing prices ! Some say go 6-core others say go 4 cores.I have a Gtx 3gb 1060 for videocard already. $500 system budget.
Well with the GPU you have you are limited to 1080P to start with.

That means you will need a powerful CPU to push the frame rates at 1080P in the newer games.

Here is what should be a stable system with all good parts and is upgradeable to the newest 9th Gen CPU's (I9's). Yes I know it's over your budget, but this is the least I could build that is actually worth having.
