The Intel gets a few more frames when gaming compared to the 3900x. But I would suggest the 3800x over the 3900x if your use is primarily for gaming. If you need multi-threaded performance too, then go for the 3900x.

I just upgraded from an I7 960 to the x570 and 3800x. For me, I wanted to be as "future proof" as possible for this build.

With a 2070S, it's a monster and cheaper than the Intel offerings as well.

Good luck on the decision.

You get more work done on 2 slower threads than a single faster thread. So the 9700k is going to reach limits faster than even an older 1st gen 1700 in some aspects, in others it won't.

Personally I'd opt for a 3800x on a decent x570 mobo and take full advantage of ram speeds and thread count.
