Totally pointless to run 2 2080tis unless you have a 4k 120hz display, put that money into monitors or something. Or AMD's stock

a 1950X/2950X is the cheap/effective solution for you, plenty of cores for streaming with 0 impact to your gameplay.

 

Thanks, everyone for the input. I think I'll proceed with the i9-9900k for now because I'll be using the system more often for gaming than content creation.

And as Streetguru mentioned, I'd be better off using the money to purchase monitors and other peripherals for the system.

Hi all,

I'm looking to build a PC primarily for gaming, video editing, and streaming. 

Ignoring all costs involved, what would be a better CPU option:

1. The i9-9900k (z370 platform) using MSI Meg Z390 Godlike motherboard, or

2. The i9-9980xe (x299 platform) using Asus Rog Rampage VI Extreme motherboard.

 

I wish to run 2x GeForce 2080Ti (using NVLink) and plan on overclocking both the CPU and the GPU.

Thanks in advance.

For everything else, the 9980xe wins without a doubt.

But even for things like editing, the difference isn't that big, esp for things like h264 based workloads.

 Often the 9980xe is only 30-40% faster in exports, and only is much better at real time for things like >4k worloads and raw and lots of multi cam. Id get the 9900k for most uses. If you need streaming with no framerate hit, id look into a external capture card.

I edit my posts a lot, Twitter is @LordStreetguru just don't ask PC questions there mostly...
 

Spoiler

 

What is your budget/country for your new PC?

 

what monitor resolution/refresh rate?

 

What games or other software do you need to run?

For strictly gaming, the 9900k is the best CPU in existence right now. You can definitely run NVLinked 2080 Ti's with one for maximum fps in any situation.

 

as far as the 9980xe, it is slightly faster out of the box than the 7980xe but worse thermals after delidding and using liquid metal on the 7980xe so the newer 9980xe actually can't overclock as high (since it can't be delidded, even though it has better solder TIM than the stock toothpaste that the older chips came with).
