First time building a PC. Running a final check by buildapc. pc building site custom pc builder

This is going to be a primarily gaming PC. It is meant to be kind of mid-tier, I am not really willing to go above a 1060 as the price doubles at a 1070 to ~$600 CAD and that is a bit beyond my wallet. I want to keep the price below ~$1500 CAD if at all possible as I still need to buy a monitor/keyboard/speakers/mouse/ect.

I play a lot of strategy/rts games like CIV, total war, paradox titles (can't play hearts of iron 4 on my laptop which is part of what inspired this purchase) and one of the things I was wondering is if I should spend an extra $100 to buy an i7-6700k or if the i5-7600k is sufficient. I also worry that the i5 wont be as (sorry) future-proof and I'll just end up upgrading in a few years to a new CPU and should just bite the bullet and spend the extra money now for a few extra years of usage out of an i7.

How is the GPU for OCing? It has a 6 pin power adapter and single fan so the other CPU I was looking at, the Gigabyte GTX 1060 6gb Windforce OC has dual fans and a 8 pin adapter which may be better for OCing (maybe).

Tell me what you think. It would help me a lot. Thanks!
