I currently have a 7700k at 5.0ghz 1.32v and a 2080ti but I’m not sure if I should get a 9900k now or wait for the 10nm cpu that’s rumored for the end of this year?

Also would a 750w psu be enough for a 9900k overclocked and a 2080ti?
 
Unless you are wanting to begin a hard-core streaming career, where admittedly 4c/8t can struggle somewhat, the 7700K still does quite well in the large majority of games...as evidenced in this '7700K revisited' review at GN...

As I also have a 7700K, I intend to wait until there is at least a game in which the performance is left wanting (sub-60 fps?). As I've had this system almost 2 years, I'd not be surprised if I get 2-3 more years from it, frankly. I'm sure by then we will also be evaluating the GTX3060, etc...

(Naturally, someone rocking a 2080Ti might want 144 fps in some of the newest titles a bit sooner than me, so good luck whichever way you choose!)
 



Up to you really, if the current machine is running fine then stick with it.

Yes a good quality 750W PSU is plenty for a 9900K and RTX 2080Ti
