Hi so i'm trying to decide which will get me more FPS on Rainbow Six Siege while streaming. I'll be saving or selling the i7 7700K and re using my current RAM 550$ Max budget

I'm also open to suggestions! :D i just need WiFi and would prefer at least some RGB on the mobo as my build is very RGB intensive already, come on, everyone knows RGB gives you more FPS :p

Currently running single channel RAM with 2 sticks because i scratched the back of the mobo and broke second 2 ram slots I believe this is causing bad performance

Are these two separate occurrences or are you ASSUMING that scratching the back of the board broke the second RAM slot?
Also, are you referring to the fourth physical RAM slot? Usually, RAM is installed in slots 2 and 4 (counting away from the CPU). If you think you damaged one of those try moving the RAM sticks to slots 1 and 3. This actually works with some boards but YMMV.

To answer your original question, the i7-9700k system will be better for just gaming but we're only talking about a slim margin - either would be great.

i've tried every slot combination 1 and 3, 2 and 4 1 and 4, 2 and 3 only one that worked was 1 and 2, and i'm assuming that because i scratched the mobo decently behind the ram slots that are broken that thats why they are broken, or its just defective by coincidence

also, i plan on streaming alot more, i stopped streaming because i stopped playing console and would lose too much FPS while streaming, i want to be able to stream again. I've heard that the 3700x is better for streaming but IDK for sure i cant find any benchmarks for just R6 siege
