I'm sure the 8700k will be killer, but also at least 50% more expensive than an R5 1600 and I'm expecting Z370 motherboards to be pricier than B350/X370 overall further compounding the uplift.

I'd ideally like GTX 1070 performance too but that's a really awkward performance point in the market due to miners and AMD latest "MSRP's".

I can either save money on the Ryzen CPU and put that back into a Vega 56 or grab the 8700k and a GTX 1060 to get me by and then upgrade to a GTX 1080 Ti second hand somewhere down the line.

I want to buy the GPU next month but without settling on a pairing I don't know what to get...
Get the AMD CPU and the Vega 56 I think you'll be much happier in the end
