They are both about the same price but the intel one is slightly cheaper.

Or you can wait for Ryzen 4th gen that's right around the corner. I'm sure that's what a ton of people here would say.

Why are you considering lga1151? it's a platform that wont get updated and is more or less dead, either comet lake or zen 2, or you could wait for zen 3 and check what it has to offer. 

but to answer your question, i'd say the 3600, but workload?


Fun Fact: The Meshify c is the best case to ever exist.

Like with anything, we don't know your use case for this CPU so we can't make a good, well-informed recommendation

Gaming only

9600K only has 6 core 6 thread. Even mainly for gaming......I won't recommend.

If your end-all be-all goal is gaming and nothing else, probably a 10600k or higher, depending on your budget.  Frequency is king for gaming and it's the only area where AMD isn't giving Intel the smackdown.
