New Build with Nvidia Super rfsh and Intel Z390 Price/Perfom Canada 9900K/9700K/8086K/

Recommended Posts

Hey, so looking at building a new pc and was wondering whats peoples thoughts on Intel CPU's atm i have a few options 9900K/9700K/8086K/ don't really like the $640 CAD Price plus tax 13% (HST Ontario) on the 9900K  so the 2 that look more apitising is a NIB (used market) 8086K for $400 even. i could also go with a 9700K for $510 plus tax 13% so $576.29. will be pairing this up with probably  RTX 2070 or 2060 Super depending on clearance pricing when they launch. 

 

at what price would you think a used 8700k/8086k makes sense? still running on probably a Z390 MB

 

whats everyones thoughts on this?

I have i7-9700K + RTX 2070. They work great for me at 1440p 144hz gaming as well as on second monitor which is 1080p 240hz... :) 

It's already an overkill CPU (even my old i5-4460 handled 1440p 144hz well, but struggled at 1080p 240hz).

 

If you play at 60hz or 144hz monitor, you might as well save some money and buy RTX 2080 + i5-9600K instead?

 

I see no reason to go as high as i9-9900K.

Btw., don't get surprised that the Z390 mobos have 2 CPU power connections. Only 1 power connector is needed unless you want to OC a lot.

yeah the 9900K seems a bit overkill for me but that NIB 8086K is tempting at $400 Cad since its just $10 more then the i5-9600k and performs better 

 

 

gettting a i5 just seems like a waste coming from a i7-4770 but am tempted on the GPU for 2070Super or 2080 but will see that later on not thinking about that right now 

single monitor is  a 240HZ Gsync Compatible with a older 1080p 60hz side IPS.
