that build is pretty balanced and solid
but i actually prefer the Ryzen option (as it is cheaper and offers more cores/threads) or even wait for the Coffelake (since the coffelake would require the 3XX mobo instead)

but like i said before, it is pretty solid already, the bottleneck should be slight to none unless the game demands intensive CPU usage (where the 4c/4t would limit your performance)
