9900K vs 2700X vs 8700K at same price point

 Share

Hello everyone,

 

I am in quite of a pickle here as I need to pick out a CPU for my next build. I may be able for these to be at the same price point, but I need to know what is best before I decide.

I am choosing between the 9900K, 2700X and 8700K.

I am going to stream and video editing, but also gaming, so I need something that can do all of those well.

Now the ideal choice for those three would be the 9900K, but I have heard, that it can get too hot.

 

I have a GTX 1060, Samsung 850 EVO 500GB and a 1TB Seagate SATA HDD. (those are the ones that I will use in the next build)

I have also decided, that I am going to get one of these three CPUs, but recommendations are welcome.

 

Thanks in advance,

Shinion

The 9900K is the best cpu so if the cost isn't a consideration.

Yes it will run a tad hotter than the other two but that's thermodynamics. More work equals more heat.

I mean the 9900k. It is just not me that will be paying it all (hopefully)

I have no personal experience with this chip, but I was told / have been reading that intel is best for purely gaming whereas Ryzen is better for multitasking and non gaming activities. As the OP stated he will be doing editing, streaming and gaming. 

 

i say this in a humble way, as I could be totally wrong. This is just from my own knowledge which is slowly growing ?

This is not true when comparing the 9900k to the 2700x.  Both have 8 cores and 16 threads and the intel cores clock higher and have slightly better IPC.

Either one is good for your use-case, but why pair it with such a low-/barely middle-tier graphics card as a 1060? Not exactly a balances setup performance wise.
