Question AMD or Intel.

They Ryzen 3000 series and Intel 9th Gen are basically equal at 1080p with a 2080Ti, with the 9th Gen being up ~5% faster. Obviously with lower end GPUs or higher resolutions the difference will be lower.
They are equal clock for clock. However lets not forget Intel can boost/overclock higher. I typically recommend Intel if the budget is high end at 1080p resolution only, at 144hz refresh rate or higher. Then recommend third gen Ryzen for basically everything else.

At equal clock speeds the Ryzen is faster, however, stock clock vs stock clock they are equal.

If this is purely for gaming and you want the very best experience at a high refresh rate then Intel still just holds the lead with the 9700K and the 9900K. the 9900K can boost to 5GHz and with a bit of overclocking both will hit 5GHz across all cores. Matched to a good GPU they will drive about as good as it gets FPS.

Ryzen has come a long, long way and yes across multiple different workloads especially pro workloads they come into there own and provide serious competition both in terms of price and performance. Ultimately it is very hard to make a bad choice these days for the top end mainstream CPU's on either side. Intel's platform has a lot of stability as it has been going for quiet a while so no issues on RAM etc and Ryzen as fairly new still can be a bit finicky but they have more than done a great job...

Bottom line if only gaming then Intel still is a great choice. These are just my own thoughts.

I’m planning on high end gaming/general use system.

Do you have any current equipment that you plan to use?

That is, do already have any of the following?
  • keyboard
  • mouse
  • monitor
  • case
  • PSU
  • etc etc
No just keyboard as well a acer 1080p monitor from my current desktop. I plan on using them on a new pc I might try to get next year.

if only have $800-$900 to deal with (I thought I had read 'high end' earlier?), the 3600 and whatever B450 that supports R5-3600 out of the box (one of MSI's models?) are pretty much the 'must haves', with both the 9700K and 9900K being out of that budget's range, even after the 5-6% price cuts...

So that you do not blow $150 on a case, I'd look at a Corsair 200R or similar, and for storage, I'd look at one of Intel's 660P M.2 drives, which are fast, yet only $95 for a 1 TB sample..

Cool. Is the RX 5700 a good card also does it have any bottlenecking issues with a Ryzen 5 just like a Intel I5?

The 5700/XT are good cards. The 5700 is about 10% faster than the 2060 at the same price and the 5700XT is about 10% faster than the 2060 Super or 2070 at the same price. The Ryzen 5 2600 is basically the best budget CPU you can get. You get a 6c/12t CPU that can be overclocked if you want, and a platform that can let you go to a Ryzen 3900X with a BIOS update.

like everyone else looking at pcpartpicker the general idea of your build is to have a R5 2600, b450 board like the MSI tomahawk 16gigs of 3000-3200mhz ram, quality PSU and a 5700 XT.

and in that budget AMD wins hands down, if you can bump the budget by 100-150USD you can get the 2070 super instead of the 5700 XT or upgrade to a 3700x and retain the 5700 XT.
its hard to recommend intel at sub 1k USD price point.
