Hi guys im planning to build my computer can you help me out if I will take the i5 8400 or i5 9600k?

My current VC is GTX ASUS Dual 1060 3gb OC
RAM is 16gb Hyper X Predator
MOBO is MSI 360M Bazooka
PSU is 500w

Question is Is there gonna be a problem and any inputs?

I'm not familiar with how you guys say bottleneck is there gonna be a problem?

Is it worth it to pump more $100 for 9600k with my current specs? (8400 is $180 and 9600k is $280)

I'll use it 85% pure gaming and 15% for my office related work.


Thank you for your help.

With the motherboard, you're losing out on the features that make the 9600k worth it (OC, XMP, Fine tuning, etc).
I would just buy the 8400 unless you plan to upgrade your motherboard too.

Isn't it 8400 is better than 9400F?
In performance - almost same even 5-10% better.. Plus this is current and cheaper than 8400..
With the price of 8400
You could get 9400f + an aftermarket cooler..
One cons.. 9400f don't have any iGPU..
Bt you have GPU already you won't need iGPU!

Do i think you should bought the most latest version the cpu i5 the best choice will it
 
If you do not intend to game, and therefor need no discrete GPU, the 8400, 8500, or 9400 or 9500 will do fine...

If you have visions of BF1 and BF5 in your future....start with a 9700K or a Ryzen 3600-based rig... (THe latter path will save you $150-$200)

So what do you guys prefer anyway the R5 3600 or R5 3600x? Also is there any thing I should expect from a AMD chip? Because i've been a intel i5 guy for almost 10 years. Haven't used AMD before.

B450 max is out in our country I'll pair it with R5 3600. Does anyone knew here if others still have problems with their B450 max?
