Wow! Now that’s what I call advice. I was considering the chance of settling for a 10900K too but didn’t know if it could handle streaming but then again it was the top of the line gaming performance cpu. So far my build would be the exact same whether I went AMD or Intel since I’d only be switching a cpu/gpu while everything else stayed the same. By any chance do you dabble in over clocking? And if so, is MSI Afterburner still the go to application?
So now another question, say i went with the 10900k or 9900k, i would be ok to stream and game correct? or would it still be better to go AMD for multi tasking?
I really appreciate the responses. Definitely just earned my business for community support alone! I keep going back and forth as far AMD and Intel but since i will only be gaming I may end up going with Intel. The Z490 is the latest motherboard that supports LGA1200 chipset?
Also, if i bought the parts at MicroCenter, can they put it together or even assist me building it there? The closest store to me is in Tustin, CA.
