the question is 6c6t enough for you on the 8600k since the 2700x is 8c16t that's the real question here is core count and hyperthreading and speed vs core count here also system cash since 2700x has almost twice as much as the 8600k.

that's subjective and also depends on what games you play some can use more cores while others are more clock speed dependent than others more Ghz isnt always faster for programs and more cores doesn't help if they are idle its basically you have to look at the games you play and what is going to fit better.

what game uses 6 cores let alone 8 cores at the moment? i5 8600k has been proven to be superior in gaming, especially against a Ryzen 7 2700X - with Ryzen you're generally better off going with a Ryzen 5 2600(X) for gaming rather than a Ryzen 7 2700(X). Ryzen 7 2700X is more geared towards media production and etc.

If you're gaming at 1080p then the i5.  If you're gaming at 1440p / 4K then the performance difference is negligible.  If you're only playing CSGO then the i5.
