I7-9700k or I9-9900k

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello, I am new to pc building, I am building a $3,000 pc and I need some help. I don't know a good config for my pc. I already bought am Asus Rog Z390-E mobo, and I wanted t do some overclocking. Should I go with an I7-9700k and an RTX 2080, or an I9-9900k and an RTX 2070. I also was planning on putting 32Gb of 3000Mhz Vengeance RGB Pro ram in the system. Btw, this is going to be strictly for gaming.

For gaming, you could prune that down to $2500 max and be just as set. Or at least put more into the GPU, and maintain the price.

 

Windows, CPU, PSU, HDD, case fans, RAM, thermal paste, cooler, all overkill IMO.  

 

I think I'm just struggling to get behind a $500+ CPU as the new mainstream gaming hotness.

Why are you buying a 4tb high endurance drive and 32gb of ram for a pure gaming desktop? You would be much better off saving money there and getting a 9900k instead of the 9700k.

you can get a better motherboard and cooler for cheaper, 2070 is the worst deal, go with a 2060 or 2080/ti, buy a windows key on ebay for 10bucks. The 860  m2 you have is NOT nvme, get a nvme. You don't need 4 sticks of memory, either save money and go with 2x8 or spend the same amount for 2x16 (i actually recommend 2x16).  If you are gonna spend 3k on a build, go with the 9900k. My entire build excluding the monitors cost less than yours with a few items on sale.

Thank you for these tips, I reduced my ram to 2 sticks of 8gb at 3200Mhz and I found a gigabyte windforce rtx 2080 for $700.

If you want to overclock so much get an Aorus Elite or anything that's actually good at overclocking instead of ASUS overpriced junk where half the $ you're paying is just for that "ROG" branding.
