The 9600K is a better option thanks to its higher single core speed.

I7 8700 is a much better purchase if you want longevity, and either can 144fps on any e-sports.

I'd go i7 for the extra threads. The slightly higher single-thread performance comes at the cost of having to also buy a compatible motherboard and a beefy cooler if you want the difference to be worthwhile. By that point you're around the same price of the i7 and I don't think that's worth it.

 

Also check out Ryzen, it's significantly cheaper for a small decrease in performance 


If I'm honest I spend more time playing with the hardware than I do playing on the hardware

A good motherboard for the i7 8700?

You can use a b360 micro-ATX board and have identical Turbo Boost clocks as the stock i5 9600K the i5 will only be any faster if you go Z370 with aftermarket cooling.

 

That is why the i7 8700 is of more value, if you're paying more for overclocking then you should go all in with the i7 8700K instead.
