Yea I agree there recommended specs are a bit of a joke but they are part of a growing trend and by next year most games I am willing to bet will be recommending i7s. Your GPU advice is sound, hell I am still on a gtx460 and it does me fine on medium settings at 1080p. |
But I strongly disagree with your views on getting a i5 over an i7. A better CPU now will last you longer and serve you better down the line saving you money in the long run.
And Watchdogs is not the only game recommending i7s in there specs, it was just one example of many. Witcher 3 is recommending an i7 for max settings...
