Thanks... I got a ASUS GTX 1060 3gb for 250$ second hand so pretty happy with this for now. Can I know if my i5-3470 processor will bottleneck the GPU?
Well I won't say that there will be bottleneck, but still depends on which games u playing as well.

In general, old games like 2015/2016 shouldn't have any visible bottleneck, by if u say modem games in 2017 probably will. Next is that graphic intensive or CPU intensive games will be able to feel the bottleneck.

I would say that u might need to lower the settings den maybe can. But for those football games maybe still but unsure since I dun play. Racing also depends but I think most most of them are still cap @ 60. As for COH what's that?

COH is Company of Heroes (old game).

so gtx 1050 oso can support 27" 144Mhz at 2560×1440 resolution?

can support is possible, but getting 144mhz @1440p with super high setting, will be just a dream for now. but maybe the next GTX 1100 maybe can support, (well who knows maybe it might just so able? )

I saw that the price difference for the MSI GTX 1060 3GB/6GB is about $45.

Is it worth to purchase the 1060 6gb for future-proofing(maybe to last 5 years)? Or should i get the 1050 now and then change to a new card 3 years down the road?

Well I would say that getting a GTX 1070 can support that monitor for at least 4 years.

GtX 1060 maybe can. As for 1050 I can't confrm unless u are still playing those games after few years.

Would the Zotac 1060 6GB Amp version fit into the CoolerMaster Elite 110A casing since both are of the same length of 210mm?

Any bros running this setup now?

I think can fit, but u will be definitely runs into very tight place especially when u are connecting your PSU. But maybe u can check the height as well. (To make sure top have clearance as well

Funny sound like what? Coil whine? If it's coil whine, u can't fix it.

Next what's that gpu? NV heard of it.

Lol buy your GPU for what if I can get even better GPU in terms of power efficiency and performance. Won't bother with your GPU.
