I have had my 9900k since early 2019 and it still works great and does everything I need. One thing I have noticed is when I game and have a video/stream up on another monitor my game goes to 40-50 fps and CPU usage is 100% steady. I wanted to wait for Ryzen 7000 instead of jumping to a 12900k but I don't know if it is worth waiting and if I will even be able to get a Ryzen 7000 CPU. I was wondering if anyone had a 9900k still and if the CPU usage is normal while multitasking a stream/video and gaming or if it is like mine at 100%?
 
8c/16t will be busy if gaming and streaming, but, I'd not decide there's a problem just because you happen to see 100% CPU usage....; if your FPS are normal otherwise, then lower when streaming, it's that added load causing it, and all you can do is try to minimize it, short of plans to acquire a new 5900X or 7900X later this year...

(There are numerous tutorials from the 7700K/8700K/9900K days on Youtube for adjusting settings of game and/or stream/record settings for optimal results for 4c, 6c and 8c systems...)

If you want to upgrade anyways, you can also get a 12700k or the Raptor Lake equivalent. The 12900k is overkill and too expensive, too, and the 13900k won't be any different.
