I'm buying a gpu in the next couple weeks and I originally planned on a 2060 super but I'm also able to get a 2070 super but I'm not sure which to choose. I don't know if the 2070 super would be limited by the 9600k or not. I know it will be overkill for 1080p gaming but I am also looking to get a 1440p 144hz monitor in the future. I read that 1080p is more demanding on the cpu opposed to 1440p so it also poses the question, will my cpu be under too much of load to be stable while running a 2070 super? Below is the list of my build so far, thanks in advance!

i59600k
MSI MAG Z390 Tomahawk
Coolermaster Hyper 212 Evo
Corsair Vengeance LPX 3000Mhz
EVGA 850w G+ 80 plus gold
Asus 1080p 144hz monitor

I dont think its an issue at all go for the 2070 super if you can even for 1080p 144hz.
On this video you can see i5 9600k vs i7 9700k with RTX 2080 ( That is a bit faster than 2070 super) at 1080p and the performance difference between these cpu's is minimal mostly 5-8 fps.

Thank you! That video definitely helped clear things up. On another note, do you know if the 9600k would be able to handle smaller mutlitasking functions while running a demanding game? For example just having discord running and maybe a webpage or 2 open? That's really the extent of my multitasking needs.
