The i9-9900k (use the ks if you go with it) Is amazing for gaming, and literally nothing else. This doesn't come with a stock cooler, so you need to buy one.The 3900x is a great all-rounder, and ships with a stock cpu cooler, which will cover you unless you plan on trying to get the max performance out of the cpu, or overclock.

What are you doing with the build? What are the other components? Especially RAM, Mobo, and the GPU

I agree, I would definitely get an i9-9900k. In general, they do not differ from eachother that much. However, Im always more keen to CoffeeLake series.

? Yes they do differ.  By 4 cores and 8 threads, and a stock cooler. Very few people in their right mind would really recommend a 9900k over the 3900x unless it was for gaming, or for a task that prefers intel hardware.

then i would suggest a 9700K or a 3700X and buy something else with the money.

If you really dont care then i would go with the 9900K hands down.

 

3700X with a nice B450 motherboard and some 3600mhz DDR4 would be my pick...especially if that allow you to

bring home say a nicer monitor, or a VR headset for example...

I also assume that if you spend that much on the CPU you at least have an RTX 2080 in your basket.

 

IF you answered no to those questions then go to even a R5 3600 / B450 and get some of those...

IF you dont care and you can afford all the above...get the 9900K with some fast memory and a sweet sweet motherboard ;)

 

Have fun!
