Hello, im looking to upgrade my current pc build but im having a hard time deciding if i should get an i5-7600 with a gtx 1060 3gb or an i7 7700 with a gtx 1050 ti. Im looking mainly towards longevity (i dont want to upgrade in a long time) and gaming at 1080p.

Additional info
: -I could stretch my budget and get an i7 7700 with a 1060 3gb or an i5 7600 and a 1060 6gb. but i dont really want to unless worth
-the price difference between i5 and i7 is around $120 dollars in here. The gtx 1050 ti: $180, 1060 3gb: $265 and 1060 6gb is $340.
-Not considering k processors because the price difference in buying a cooler and oc mobo is way too much in here. I also dont want amd.
-I dont really mind lowering some settings in some games to get better fps, what i want the most is not having to upgrade any time soon

i5 + better GPU is what I'd recommend. What current CPU and GPU do you have now?

i currently just bought a gtx 1050 ti (didnt expect to have so much cash leftover for a significant cpu upgrade), but i can resell it to a friend and barely lose any money. As for the cpu its not very good, its an a8-7600
