Easy to get hold of but it is more expensive than an i5 and you need a good cooler to keep it in check.

 

Maybe state your budget/country and what you need.

The 9th gen i7 and i9 are hard to get. The 8700k would add about $100 to the bill. Ultimately the i5 9600k will be good for gaming, but having more threads would be ideal. Imho worth the $100 if it can be afforded

Im from norway, and im mostly going to use it for gaming. 

 

Understand that and i7-8700k would be better, but with what i have now would it be fine for gaming?

The i5 is ok just for gaming, but you would be better off going with a Z390 chipset. The one you have doesn't allow overclocking.

 

Maybe consider Ryzen as you get better value for money. What monitor are you going to be using ?

A Ryzen build would give you better value for money. They lose out to Intel at 1080p 144Hz etc so I guess it depends on what resolution/refresh rate you are looking at. If you have a 1080 ti then you should really be aiming for a 1440p G-Sync.
