Hey guys, I'm sure this topic has been discussed somewhere but I can't seem to find it.
I am currently planning out my first gaming pc build and need some help. I do not know if I should go with the i9 9900k or the ryzen 9 3900x. Both are great cpu's and I know that but everyone seems to be going with the ryzen even though many benchmarks have the i9 getting better frames while in game and what not. I would like this computer to have good upgrade potential but I also want to get what would be best for me right now. I am new to all of this. One thing I have been reading up on is PCIe gen 4 and how ryzen supports this and intel does not. With the new 3000 series graphics cards possible being released sometime this year I do not know if I should let this sway my opinion or not. I plan on getting a 2080 super graphics card for my build. Just thought I'd throw that in there so you all know what I will be pairing either of these beast cpu's with. Any help would be appreciated and if I said something that is incorrect or didn't make sense please let me know. I am trying to learn as much as I can about this stuff!
