Hello !

Im wondering with cpu I should choose 5600x or 5800x if I have RTX 2080 Ti Graphics card?
Im thinking about getting Asus ROG STRIX B550-F Gaming (WI-FI) as motherboard


I mostly just game, but I wan't to make content for youtube too.
I use 3000 MHz Ram too...

currently have i7 8700k

mostly play : Apex Legends, Valorant...

yes, and sorry 5700x doesn't exist, must have had a brain fart

in my opinion yes it is worth it, but upgrade your ram to maybe 3600 or 3200 just to make it a little more balanced if you want to.
 
IMO, if you are video editing, consider the more threads version. For gaming, either of those would be exceptional. According to most sources they are within a % or two of each other and populate the top 5 best gaming CPU in (almost) everyone's performance charts. UBM is still shilling....

I did upgrade to 5800X , it's really good but much higher temps than 8700K, if I'm playing a game I get 70C temp with NZXT Kraken X52

I upgraded from a 6700k@4.9GHZ to a 5600x and honestly I dont see a whole lot of difference. I cannt see the difference past 80fps thou, so if you have better eyes maybe it is worth it to you.
