Ryzen 2700x or i7-9700k I’ve heard Ryzen 2700x is better than the 9700k I just want to know which ones a better purchase. Thank you
 
Gaming summary- If planning on a very good GPU and possibly using a 144 Hz monitor, the 9700K is usually capable of better framerates. ('very good GPU' defined as, for instance, a, GTX1080/RTX2070 and above). With mid-range GPUs ( GTX1060/RX580-class), the frame rates would not matter as much, especially if using a 60 Hz monitor...

Additionally, if 4k gaming on newer games, the GPU becomes ~98% the determining factor (avoiding the term 'bottleneck'!), and, framerates would again be nearly identical for most CPUs of R5-1600/i5-8400 and up...

If using something like OBS to game/stream using cpu encoding, 2700x is better.
If using NVENC to game/stream using gpu encoding the 9700k is marginally better by a few fps in most games.
In production, for things like compiling, the 2700x is considerably better.
For other programs like AutoCad, AMD can't touch Intel IPC or clock speed.

When it comes to the wallet, it's pretty even at those levels, but AMD can still get a better mobo/cooler for about the same overall price.

For purely gaming, especially fps intensive games, Intel is still top dog.

Is this one good can? I run sli on it?

2 x Aura RGB Strip Headers.

That's all the RGB you get. The built in Aura lighting controls the motherboard RGB lighting and those 2 strip headers. If that's all the RGB you want is a couple of strips, go for it, it's a decent board.
By comparison, the MSI MPG Z390 Pro Carbon I tagged has :
  • 2x 4-pin RGB LED connectors
  • 1x 3-pin RAINBOW LED connector
  • 1x 3-pin CORSAIR LED connector
Plus its a better board. Asus for some odd reason seems to be pretty lackluster with their VRM's on the 390's compared to Gigabyte or MSI. Even ASRock is every bit as good, although their prices reflect the lackluster RGB efforts.
