I'm about to upgrade to this CPU from i5-6400.
Say, can this CPU run any game today at maxed out setting? (let say the GPU is 1080)
Is it futureproof for like 5 years?

5 years look pretty good and realistic to me. Possible.

But do u think i5-6600K is better? It's way cheaper here in my country (100$ gap), plus I only use my PC for gaming. No rendering, coding, emulator-ing, etc

In that case go for 6600k mate. For gaming only scenario an i5-6600k would be a nice choice.

depends on how far you overclock. the 6600k is about 20-30% worse in multithreaded workloads. if you can overclock it far enough then i guess it's better to get an i5.

In which process multithreaded workloads are used? I'll be only gaming by the way and thinking of getting a GTX 1070.

Yeah, I'm debating getting the 6700 instead of the 6600K but if it won't make a huge gaming difference then I don't want to spend an extra 50 bucks

i7 6700 is way cheaper actually. H170/B150 mobo + 2133Mhz RAM + i7 6700 is cheaper than i5 6600k + Z170 mobo + 2400Mhz RAM + extra CPU cooler. Apx. 60-70 bucks
