Which CPU would be a good match for a RTX 2080 Ti, a R5 2600X or a i5 8600K or 9600k?

Im will use a 2560x1440p 144Hz monitor with triple A games at Ultra settings.

The i5 9600k is one of the best gaming processor.

And would go very well with the 2080Ti

9600k is the choice in this situation. I also thought the price was closer for the 9900k, but it's really not.

How does the 8700K compare?  It seems odd to match a mid level CPU with a top tier video card especially one that costs over $1000.   I would go with an i7 or i9 or a Ryzen 2700X.  If you have to go with an i5 I agree with Taf the Ghost the 9600K is the one to go with.

The correct answer is "neither".

 

The i5 9600K can actually bottleneck the RTX 2080 Ti and indeed it does not make sense to spend 1200$ on the GPU and then grab a 250$ CPU.

 

The 2080 Ti requires an i7 8700K / i7 9700K / i9 9900K - if you can't afford these processors you shouldn't be buying the 2080 Ti in the first place.

 

The Ryzen 5 2600X shouldn't even be considered for a RTX 2080 Ti specially for high refresh rate gaming (144hz), people may not understand how fast the fastest mainstream GPU by nVidia is... not even at 4k resolution the Ryzen 7 2700X single thread can keep up with it:

See it lags just slightly behind and it gets much worse on 1440p, so OP either step down to the RTX 2080 'non-Ti'  so the i5 9600K suffices or he step up his budget for an appropriated CPU for the behemoth of a card the 2080 Ti is.

i was just looking for data on bottlenecking to post, but yep i agree with you
