Depends on use.

In reply to: What is better?

Some games push the GPU, some use the CPU. This will be a horse race with a photo finish.

You didn't tell which Core i5/7 either so if you picked a low i7 and a high i5 the 1070 Ti would win all tests.

I'm not going to answer since 1, it's a horse race, 2, the versions of the CPUs are left out and 3, no games listed.

The 4th issue.

In reply to: Depends on use.

I don't see the display listed. The 1060 is fine for almost all gaming on 1080p monitors.
The 1070 Ti is barely there for UHD 4K use according to the gamers I talk with.
