Pick the motherboards too and then which combo is cheaper and has the better features. But the 11600K is starting at a deficit with only 6 cores/12 threads up against 8 Zen 3 cores/16 threads.

neither will allow for a cpu upgrade down the road, both will allow for any other upgrade you wish later on.

for me personally, AMD is the way to go right now. cheaper overall and MUCH LESS power used, which means MUCH LESS heat produced and MUCH LESS cooling needed.

it's a no brainer right now to go for AMD until intel gets their smaller node working and we see what those can do. but 250+w to accomplish the same thing AMD does on 100w is not worth it. cheaper overall for the amd system at this time.
