      3770K + board + 16GB RAM will give you around 26-28K

      Upgrade
      6700K NEW 38000 | 7700K NEW 41000 PKR
      Motherboard ASUS or gigabyte will least cost you between 13000 - 16000 PKR
      16GB (8GB*2) is available at around 15K NEW

      Total 72000/- PKR for this upgrade.

      Exclude the amount of upgrade from Current Specs estimation, you will require 44000/- PKR more to upgrade to Kabylake 7700K. If you go with used products you can exclude 5-6K from the difference.

      wow thats a pretty hefty cost... but after looking around a little bit i found these.
      i7 7700k for 37k here on pakgamers
      MSI Mother Board - H110M PRO-VH Plus available at homeshopping for 8500, its a good board and has overclocking capabalities...

      i think its safe to get a used ram.. for around 10k..

      thats gets me a total of 55000k so difference should be 55k-27k~28k..

      I rather consider Czone.com.pk which has much better reputation compared to homeshopping. The price I quoted was for New and for products available on reliable stores such as Shingpoint.com.pk, Galaxy.
      Used items on Pakgamers would be your best bet if you're on mitigate your range.

      You can find the lowest end board for Kabylake on Czone as well. Motherboards - LGA-1151 Socket in Pakistan | Computer Zone

      Save cash on CPU & RAM.

      If you want to buy a 6700K then get a Z series board please. Otherwise just buy a 6700, why pay extra for the unlocked processor when you aren't getting the right chipset.

      3770k still have enough power to play all games on ultra...instead upgrading your all setup just buy 1070 or 1080, which is better according to me

      I haven't done any research on 270 series boards so I can't answer your question. But when I was getting my PC last year, the best bang for buck board [for z170] was the Asus Z170-A. If I remember correctly it was around 150$. Although I went with the Maximux VIII Hero.

      A quick search on PakDukaan shows the cheapest Z270 board to be 15.5K. So to answer your question you will not get a new Z270 series board in 10K in Pakistan.
