Super torn 9900k vs 3800X/3900X

So as the thread title says, after watching a fair few reviews, I am now super torn about what to go for in terms of new build.

I tend to use my PC primarily for gaming and would like to explore streaming in the future but now I have no idea whether to go with a Ryzen and some of the newer technologies or stick with current gen but get the better framerates.

Just to give an idea of what I'm keeping...

-Fractal Design S2
-Seasonic Prime Titanium Ultra 850W PSU
-32GB 3200Mhz CAS14 Team Group Ram
-MSI Gaming X Trio RTX 2080

I guess the question is guys. What would you do in my situation and why?

If you are serious about streaming then the Ryzen CPUs are just better. You will get similar FPS when streaming. The difference is Ryzen is better at not dropping frames whereas the 9900k still can. There was a review on it but I can't remember where it was from...

Ryzen and X470 personally.

I saw that. Ryzen managed to hold 4.2ghz no matter what but the 9900k started throttling to base speed.

I'd go with the 3900x myself. It's not what I'd consider terribly expensive and it's insane.

It was Linus, dudes. Watch his review.

Well Linus did exactly the same test so it was obviously a corporate shill job instructed by AMD.

Either way the results are undeniable.

Linus is obviously a shill. Highly doubt other guy is. I've watched him for a while.
Watched Linus for sake of comparison. Not "exactly the same test" so that's laughable conspiracy theory you got there.

AMD did do this type of test during their livestream reveal of Ryzen3000&Navi tbf.

Ah so they probably picked it up from that. That makes sense..

TBH I don't watch Linus at all any more. I don't like him, not since he did the whole "do you know who I am?" Thing. I've had him on "not interested" on YT for ages, but did want to see as many Zen 2 reviews as I could.
