hey everyone was looking to get new cpu and mobo was thinking about grabbing the ryzen 7 3800x. I have a i7 9700k for a while now and was seeing the new ryzens were pulling better numbers than the 9700k. Im wondering if that upgrade would be worth it and what everyone thought about making that switch. I really want to switch to the 3900x but cant find them anywhere so that is also a option. anyone have any thoughts or suggestions? I game on my pc about everyday and i also stream on twitch so i will be gaming and streaming from the same pc.

A sidegrade at best if your primary hobby is gaming. You won't see a significant difference between the 2, until:
-games normally start using more than 8 threads
-you do professional/rendering/development work

Stick with your 9700K. It's not a slouch by any means.

I really want to switch to the 3900x but cant find them anywhere so that is also a option.
It's just a matter of supply being unable to keep up with demand.

Gaming + streaming doesn't all have to be handled by the cpu. Nvidia has NVENC and Shadowplay, AMD has ReLive(?).
