i cant choose between these 2 cpus the 10700k for $569 the 10850k for $639 i have eliminated the other cpus including the 10900k for $749 it just doesnt seem like a good deal. sorry amd fan boys i am not interested in amd's horrible products and/or service.
ok back to the intel situation i bought a asus tuf z490 plus wifi motherboard and i will be buying a asus tuf rtx3080 when i can get my hands on one.
according to userbenchmark the 10850k overall only about 2% faster than the 10700k but about 8% in workstation tasks.

Honestly with that small of a price delta I would go with the 10850K. Sounds like you are going to spend somewhere in the neighborhood of $1500 between CPU / Mobo / GPU, so that little extra $70 on CPU to get an extra 5-10% breathing room makes total sense.

Below links to a TPU review's aggregated overall performance numbers for the 10850K vs other CPUs reviewed across a bunch of tests. The 10850K did really well. Individual tests are earlier in the review:

first post says 519.99 on sale 569.99 regular
second says 549 sale 593 regular
i dont place pricing on sales as it will be a week or two before i have the money and sales usually only last a day or two
