Intel to AMD?

agreed with @SPARTAN VI, 9700f anytime u want, u can wait til zen 3 release to make a fully informed decision if u want.  Not a 9600k, i have a 8600k it's really not enough threads.

So as per my last post, I was thinking of upgrading to an i5 9400f but I've got a bit more cash than expected. So I was thinking of switching from my i3-9100f to something with 6 cores for streaming (With NVENC) I also want the ability to overclock. I have lots of experience with only 1st and 3rd gen Ryzen hardware, but not 2nd, and my motherboard doesn't support overclocking, so I was wondering I should go Ryzen 5 2600 (1600af is never available here) with a new motherboard or should I get an i5 9600k and save a few bucks, then upgrade my motherboard in the future? Soon I will also be getting a new gpu if either I get a really good price for 2060/2060s or if the 3060 releases. I just want the dlss 2.0 benefit of the tensor cores to get 144fps when I finally get a good enough monitor.

I'd either go straight to the i7-9700F, or if it's not feasible then save a little longer for next gen Ryzen to force Ryzen 3000 CPUs into the bargain bin.
