Is 10900K overkill for 100hz monitor?

I am in the market for a new MOBO and CPU. Would I be OK pairing a 10600k with my 2080ti Kingpin on a 100hz 3440x1440 monitor? The CPU will be watercooled.

My Z270 board is starting to give me issues and I need to replace it or upgrade. All the CPU comparisons seem to compare FPS in the range of 100-244. However, I have a 100hz 3440x1440 monitor and I only see up to 50% CPU utilization (7700k @5.0) on the open-world games that I play. I just moved up in GPU to a 2080ti Kingpin (got a deal), which means I should be hitting 60-100fps in Ultra on pretty much every game.

depends if you consider upgrading something that isn't limiting to you as overkill or not I guess, lol.

My 7700k is not limiting on a Vega 64, but I want to know how many Intel cores, minimum, I should pair with 2080ti KPE. I know 4 cores will limit me with RTX features enabled, as well as in multiplayer games approaching 100 fps.

I am afraid to install the 2080ti until I get a new motherboard because my current motherboard is a black widow when it comes to graphics cards. Also, my 16-lane slot is stuck in 2-lane mode so I can only use a GPU in the x8 slot. Which is fine for a Vega but might limit a 2080ti running at 2200mhz.

GPUs don't "need" a specific number of cores, lol. that's not a real question.

Look at CPU benchmarks for the games you play and see how they scale with core count. If all you do is play CS:GO you'd be fine on a quad core with a 2080 Ti, and if you upgraded the CPU you'd get limited gains. But if you're playing a ton of RDR2 and CIV6 then you'd get substantial gains going with a 10700K over a 10600K with the same GPU.

I play RDR2 and plan to get Flight Simulator 2020, so this answers my question.

The higher you get in resolution, the less of a bottleneck the CPU is likely to be. You're unlikely to see a difference in performance between an i5-10600K, i7-10700K, and i9-10900K at 1440 widescreen. If money is a concern, the i5-10600K will be enough. It's unlikely to become a bottleneck in the near future despite what a lot of people think about next-gen consoles changing PC gaming forever.

As suspected, a 10600k should be plenty.

As for consoles, they keep the game industry alive and games like Fortnite are a gateway drug to mouse and keyboard.

Consoles aren't a gateway drug to anything. They're one way to play video games. Someone playing Fortnite on Xbox isn't going to be anymore inclined to want to game on a PC than someone playing any other shooter. The only reason to own consoles is the exclusives.
