Which Video Card Should I Go With?

Building a new PC this July or so. It will run an Intel Core i5-6600K 6M Skylake Quad-Core 3.5 GHz, 32GB DDR4, and a few other bells and whistles but those are the big two. I am unsure which video card to go with. I'm willing to spend up to $500 on one but I know from past builds that throwing money at a video card isn't always going to get you the best one. I will mainly be gaming and emulating but may dabble into some video work too but nothing too major.

4K would be nice but isn't a deal breaker. 1440p though, that just may be. Might get a new monitor. Another possible concern is that I'm not sure what's on the horizon. Is building this in July a sound move or is better close to release?

I thank everyone who reads or responds for their time!

Fantastic Response!

I'm not sure if anyone is going to outdo your response! That is nothing short of amazing and will also save me a little cash in my build! I thank you immensely.

I still welcome another other answers/insight Happy
