Yeah, im sorry for posting this but im at work but leaving early today to get my parts from microcenter.
With the price drops of the 9900k ($440)locally it makes it hard to choose my new build. amd vs intel. Im like 80% on the side of amd this time around. Competition is great for us
Was thinking of the 3800x(it's in stock locally) and putting that $100 towards an M2 drive. (the $97 1tb one from microcenter)

Thought I would share. Screenshot of the clocks for quick ref. but he did have 10 cpu's to work with

Thought id share im sure others remember Abit or still have em in use.
I am thinking of upgrading my 6yr old cpu. With a 9th gen cpu I7-9700k or the I9-9900k
Probably just stay with the I7-9700k
I got a lot of mileage out of my current cpu.
The clock speed difference alone seems worth it.
plus new chipset features
$399 vs $549 (saw the review where...
