Combo 1:
I5-9600k (Clocked To 5.0 or 5.1Ghz)
&
RTX 2070 Super (8% Slower than 2080, about 10-30fps difference)

Or

Combo 2:
I7-9700k (Clocked To 5.1Ghz)
&
RTX 2060 Super (Basically 2070 but 1% slower, 1-3 fps difference)

Personally I believe the 2nd combo is more practical.

Thanks
 
I would go for the bottom setup.

Likely you will see a higher framerate with the I5 and 2070 super today, however, some games max out the I5 currently so in the future you will really want the 8 threaded I7.

Why not go Ryzen and get a better GPU allowing for better framerate?
Something like this will cost less than either I believe.

I am specifically going for intel, knowing Ryzens give you a better deal most of the time. Don’t ask why, I don’t have a proper reason, I just prefer intel.

Also I prefer the gpu to be ASUS Strix or MSI Gaming X branded. Don’t ask why, same reason as above ^.

Thanks
