5800X is the better buy. Have to upgrade the motherboard anyway so, why stick with blue team?Hey guys, I've had my CPU for over 5 years+ now CPU has been doing good with my GPU.
My question is should I upgrade to the new Core i7-11700K or older generation Core i9-11900K ? Is it worth it?
I was looking at getting Z590 motherboard as well to go with it.
If you DO stick with blue team, just get a 11700k and be done with it. The 11900K is pointlessly expensive and hilariously unjustified. Loses in SC performance vs the vastly superior 5900X and is demolished in MT work.
