going to be building a computer soon and was wondering how good or which one is better for gaming, editing and streaming?
 
For all around gaming, editing and streaming you can't go wrong with either but the 8700K has additional threads might make a difference though super small. In gaming the difference is very close with the 9700K being just a tad faster...Both will overclock to 5GHz....It just really comes down to price as both CPU's are great.

Here is a great article with stats covering both CPU's
