    Did some more digging on this. I keep flip flopping on the processor. At first, I was going with the 10940, then the Ryzen 3950X, then 3900X, back to 3950X, and now back to 3900X. Was told by someone yesterday that I should only be looking at the i9-9900k.

    Performance between the 3900X and the 9900k seems comparable.

    What tasks are you using the computer for?

    9900K - gaming and apps
    3900x - apps and gaming

    Pretty simple stuff. a 3950x will be a waste of money unless you actually need that many cores. A 9700k will outperform a 9900k in some gaming scenarios, so consider that if you just plan on playing.

    Thanks zip. More gaming than apps... so I guess that answers my question.

    Got a system on the go finally. i9 9900K with the 2080Ti. 2TB of M.2 for storage.

    Went to Memory Express today in NE Calgary. Damn that place is sweet! Picked up 64GB (overkill but future proofing for flight sim) of DDR4 RAM w/XMP. Saved some decent cash there compared to Compusoft in Red Deer.

    Literally just got this so haven't had time to dive into games yet. Just downloading Civ6 and The Division right now.

    CIV 6 was free a few days ago through Epic Games, not sure if it still is or not - might be worth checking if it's not too late. Steam had it 70% off for a while too but I think that's over now.

    Congrats on the new PC, looks like it's a beast

    I've actually had Civ6 for quite sometime now. Got steam all set up and downloaded to the new rig from my steam library. Same thing goes with uplay for The Division.
