If you're not on budget and you're starting from a new build, you're better off going with ryzen. That being said, you cant go wrong with either one

If you don't have a Z390 motherboard already, why buy one now when there will be no new CPUs for it? If you decide to go the Intel route, i'd get 10600k. and in the future you'd be able to upgrade to the 11th gen CPU with PCIe 4.0 support (I imagine in 3+ years GPUs and NVME drives might benefit from the extra bandwidth when you consider the total amount of data moving across the bus). But I agree with the above poster, and would go with (X570 /B550)/Ryzen (and I did).

You can compare prices on a 9900K/Z390 and 10700K/Z490 combos...

The extra two cores/four threads of the 10900K require extra beefy cooling, and, are not yet of any real use in gaming....(I suspect by the time they are, we will be at DDR5 and PCI-e 5.0 anyway)
