PC Gaming duders, I come seeking your advice!
! I was lucky enough to get a 3090 from a local computer store here (and am mostly leaning towards keeping it), but I was thinking about the potential bottlenecks and looking at how it could affect my gaming experience. Currently, my i5 8600K is running stable at 4.6GHz with a 2080.
I was wondering if it was worth it to get a i9 10850K units on sale for $400, knowing that I would also have to get a new motherboard (because of the incompatibility). I know AMD's chips are all the rage and I'm sure it's valid advice to wait on those, but I do like the idea of revamping everything at once.
This is primarily for gaming at 1440p on a monitor, with maybe 4K gaming when I get an OLED at the end of next year (which is why I sometimes feel like I should return and just try for a 3080, but ehh). No streaming or content creation, just purely for running games with high detail and smooth performance.
The TL;DR: Should I upgrade my i5 8600K running at 4.6GHz to an i9 10850K, or wait for new Intel/AMD chips?
