It all boils down to your budget. What are you willing to spend?  because its not just the CPU price difference, MoBos cost as well (and maybe you need to buy RAM too? ) so it must fit your budget. 

i dont understand something.,.   why some people recomended  the  3600x  against the 3700x  for  gaming?/

 

the  3700x  is more  futureproof against  the  3600x??  for  the  gaming?/

It isn't better in gaming, it's cheaper with very similar performance. If you're not worried about super tight price/performance and aren't cutting corners somewhere you shouldn't to do so, grabbing a 3700X is fine.

if i will  buy  the  3700x or 3800x will last me for  games in  1440p  for 3  years??

because  a  lot of games  will  support and  have  benefits  from the  8 cores??

I can't see 3 years into the future so I can't say for sure, but yeah ya should be fine.

why  some people say  that  the  3600x is  better  in gaming against  the  3700x;

because of what I told you, they have budget in mind, in their case they focus more on dollar per frame performance which makes the 3600x system a more desirable solution (I would say a 3600 would be an even wiser choice) 

 

But maybe you are not concerned about keeping the budget as low as possible and have an X amount of budget that you are willing to spend anyway without caring about saving more money than the X amount you are about to spend.

 

In that case we need to know what X is in order to give you a suitable answer.

I think you should only buy an i9 9900k if you plan to run a 2080 ti or higher for gaming.

 

I tested my GTX 1080 ti against the 2080 ti for quite a while and found that the 2080 ti needs 5gz in an Intel CPU to get its full potential. With the GTX 1080 ti it was not needed at all.  I expect that a RTX 2080 or less would not need it either.

 

A problem may start with next gen high end GPUs.

My EVGA 2080 ti XC does not bottleneck at 1080p with a 5ghz CPU in the games/benches I tested with but my EVGA 2080 ti FTW3 Ultra does. I have to get the CPU to 5.2ghz to stop the bottlenecks and that is more than my cooling system can do 24/7. 

The performance difference between my XC and FTW3 Ultra is not much but it is like going over a cliff comperining the to. 

 

With the next gen(3080 ti) I expect to bottleneck at 1440p at 5.1ghz. That is what my stock i7 8700k(4.7ghz) did with the FTW3 Ultra.

Look what some persons told me for the 3600x and tell me if you agree

No, it's not, because you would give +130 euros for a guess. Nobody knows today to tell you if the games coming out in 2 years will lose by 6 cores / 12 threads. Get 3600 now and in 2 years, IF there is a problem, you sell it and you get a new one. The +130 euros today you will just lose because for 2 years they will not be used at all

The average user will never use 3700x even at 70%

 

 

I use 6 core CPUs and I would not buy another one. 

I have an i9 9900k(8 core) rig I test against my i7 8086ks(6 core)  and from the tests it is not time to upgrade to 8 cores yet but there is a point that the 6 core CPUs will become unsmooth in open world games just like the 4 cores did.
