I'd say 3700X, as it will be better than the 9700K when streaming (because of SMT), while also being cheaper, but you'll need to either have your retailer flash the latest BIOS onto the motherboard (since it's a B450), or also get something like a cheap Athlon 200GE to help you flash the BIOS.

If it's just gaming then perhaps i9 9900K is still to go, but differences won't be big, so any of these will probably do. Whatever's cheapest.

The 3700X makes the most sense, best value, near the same performance to a 9900K in most cases, uses far less power, runs cooler and doesn't have security issues like the core I cpus

I would go with the ryzen option. B450 gaming pro Carbon is solid choice - if the MAX version is available to you you could grab one of those for out or box compatibility

I wouldn't get an MSI motherboard.

I'd probably go with the 3600 as @Princess Luna suggested. Though if you're set on getting something higher end the 9700k is solid.

Though, since you're getting a midrange CPU, the 3600 makes more sense. Plus you can potentially upgrade the GPU, which will give you a greater gain.
