willl be pairing with a Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Pro Wifi, just not sure which CPU is the better gaming option. my two primary games are BF1 and GTA V. I also play PUBG, BF4, DOOM, FC5, TF2 (titanfall 2, not team fortress 2), and the Darkness Within 2.
which do you think is a better value? I'm leaning 8700K as I think that will work just as well as a 9700K for most games and RN its $40-50 less. My desired target resolution and refresh is 2560x1440p @ 144hz or 165hz. I have a GTX 1080 TI to pair with that and will be also grabbing an Acer XB271HU bmiprz
EDIT: Thank you all for the replies, you made up my mind to get the 9700K (or 9900K if it comes down in price anytime before I buy).
