So people I took the plunge today

Have opted for an ASUS Crosshair VIII Hero & a 3800X.

Completely understand that the 9900k Z390 etc. would have given me a slight gaming edge but I wanted to support AMD and give them a whirl. Also I'm hoping having a PCIE 4 ready MoBo may benefit me next time I upgrade my GPU.

I'm super picky about my components so very chuffed that my new build will be as follows

Case: Fractal Design S2 Blackout
CPU: AMD 3800X
Cooler: Corsair H115 Platinum
MoBo: ASUS Crosshair VIII Hero
RAM: 32GB TeamGroup 3200Mhz CAS 14
Storage: Samsung 970 Evo Plus 2TB & 500GB Samsung 850 Pro SSD
GPU: MSI RTX 2080 Gaming X Trio
PSU: Seasonic Prime Ultra Titanium 850W

Thanks again everyone for the advice, links to vids etc. Appreciated as always!

I have the same thoughts as you. It is better for all users if AMD is strong so I got the

3900x
MSI Ace x570
Lian li 011 dynamic
Cooler 360 Thermatake aio ( should have went the 115i platimum )
4x8gb 3200 CAS16 ( already have )
2080 ti (already have )
Corsair hx1000i (already have )
Samsung 970 Pro Evo 1TB

Good competition between Intel and AMD can only be good for us users
