I'm gonna buy a new PC but I'm deciding between 9700k and 9900k.. Would the extra 8 threads make a difference worth $145 dollars when streaming?

Conclusion -

Basically you can build a Ryzen 7 2700X gaming rig with a GTX 1080 Ti and still save over $100 compared to a i9-9900K build using a GTX 1070. Again, unless you have money to burn, the 9900K is not a great value at the current asking price.

The Core i7-9700K is an even worse proposition in my opinion, although we haven’t had time to test thermal performance properly, it does seem to run hotter than the 8700K, despite being soldered. It also consumes quite a bit more power and offers a minor performance bump. I would liken this comparison to the RTX 2070 and GTX 1080, in the sense that the newer product is faster by a small margin while costing a little more. Unfortunately whereas the RTX 2070 uses a little less power than the GTX 1080, the 9700K isn’t more fuel efficient than the 8700K.

Where I am from the 9700k is actually $20 cheaper than 8700k but I'm not gonna be streaming all the time.. if I were I'd probably go for the ryzen but I'm still unsure with 9700k vs 9900k.. you know any like data or % of how much faster would the 9900k be when streaming?
