1st for games currently released will be decent for 1080p.
3rd if you plan on keeping the gpu, games slated for the Q4 2018 are more than likely going to tax even a 1060/6 at 1080p as games like farcry 5 do now.

3rd one, but the newer 2600X would be a better choice if you can get it - just bear in mind older motherboards would need a BIOS update.

If you wanted to go intel go and can't afford to go with an 8600K + 1070 then get an 8400 + 1070. Forget the 7700, while it is a good gamer buying a 4 core CPU now that there are all these 6 and 8 core options feels like the wrong choice to me. The 8400 is just better.

Edit: also you can use a cheaper motherboard with the non-k intel CPUs which gives you more money for the GPU.

My thoughts basically summarise to:- any 6 or 8 core ryzen or i5/i7, 16GB of RAM, any reasonable motherboard that is compatible, and the best graphics card you can afford

Gonna say 3rd. Better GPU and CPU support until at least 2020.
 
#2 is the worst option as the core-7000 series has been abandoned by Intel already.

Your best bet is #1 or #3. #3 will get you higher fps in most games because most games are GPU-limited if you have a half decent CPU. Only get #1 if you mostly play very CPU-intensive games.

Get #3 for most situations.
