This would be fine for that, not sure how much the Intel chips are maybe a bit cheaper?

The 9700k is over £300 usually. Bang for buck 3600x, future proofing 3700x or fps currently 9700k I believe

I think the 3700x and 9700k are very similar on fps, if you already have a mb to support either of the chips then I would go with whichever otherwise your looking at a new mb too

It actually still played a lot of games at reasonable frame rates. Hard drives gone but decided its probably time. Well overdue really. I love choosing all the parts anyway

The AMD platform has better upgrade options now and with more due and is better value.
It is also more power efficient and isn't plagued with security issues unlike Intel.
By the time Intel can compete with the AM4 chips it might be 1 or 2 years away and it definitely will use a different socket.
I'd choose AMD unless you have a very specific reason not to.

Above 1080p it really doesn't matter that much for gaming. I have a first-gen 1800X overclocked to 4GHz paired with a 2080 and I rarely ever see any kind of CPU bottleneck at 1440p, and when it appears it's in obvious things like World of Warcraft that are far more CPU-heavy. Even moving to a 9900K would barely net anything over one of these, since you run into a GPU bottleneck almost constantly anyway. Even with a 2080 Ti:

And if you're moving to 4K, the CPU requirement is obviously even less, since it'll be a long time before a card is pushing the same kind of framerates at 4K as the 2080 Ti does at 1440p. I'd recommend going for one of these. The real bonus is that you also have major, easy upgrade options available to you then. Not just the higher end CPUs in the current Ryzen lineup, but the 4000 series chips when they arrive later this year, which will be a drop-in upgrade. Whereas if you buy a 9700K, the only place you have to go from there is the 9900K, since Intel have moved to a new socket yet again for their upcoming Comet Lake parts. And the 9900K is likely to be overpriced for a long time to come, since it's the best CPU for its socket, and those always command a ridiculous premium on the used market.

I hadn't t thought about that. I might have waited for the 4000 series if my pc hadn't given up. If I go with the 3700X the new series 4000 can use the same motherboard as well as cooler?

1080p or less you will get about 10% more frames depending on the game with a 9700k.

1440p or upwards there is zero difference between 9700k, 3700x and maybe even the 3600x too as games become GPU bound.

Personally, don’t waste your money on a 9700k as it’s on a dead socket, if you really want Intel their new SKUs are out soon.

If I was in the market now for a CPU, I will be going for the 3600x on an B450 motherboard and then drop in the Ryzen 4000 series into the same motherboard when it’s out.

Can't unfortunately. Need it right away. I'm having to do extra work in the office due to lack of computer. I know by June we should be seeing faster cards. I don't mind losing a few hundred quid if I choose to upgrade later in the year.

If you are looking at the 2080 and 2080Ti, if the node shrink improves performance as expected then there will be more than a few hundred wiped off the current top cards.

The MSI Mortar Max is worth looking at too and cheaper and has a couple features the Tomahawk Max doesn't and vice versa. I just bought one and set it all up last Sunday.

Looking at ASUS ROG STRIX B450-F GAMING or ASUS ROG STRIX B360-H GAMING


Personally I'd recommend the MSI B450 TOMAHAWK MAX, by all accounts one of the best (if not the best) value B450 boards, it can support the 3900X which I'm running at the moment (I'm told it can even support the 3950X) so it has a lot of upgrade potential. It also supports 3rd gen Ryzen out of the box which unless I'm mistaken the STRIX B450-F doesn't so that will involve either using a 1st/2nd gen chip to update the BIOS or getting the seller to flash it for you, not a deal breaker but just more unnecessary hassle. The TOMAHAWK MAX also has BIOS flashback so you don't even need a cpu to update the BIOS which is very handy, if you ever needed it.
There's a helpful spreadsheet (credit to Cr1318 and Cautilus#5912) which is a comprehensive list of AM4 Vcore VRM Ratings:
