    Currently looking for a PC that I can build.

    Budget: £3000

    What I mainly want the PC for: Gaming, I would like to benefit from 144hz monitors. Streaming at a good quality. and video editing (Adobe Suite)

    the problem I got with the 9900k I would like is that it runs hot and I like to do Adobe Premiere work often as its my main hobby I like to do and I would get a 144hz Monitor but for now I'm looking for a tower PC that would benefit me for awhile. ifI can fit in a monitor that's a bonus.

    (also I've been thinking about 8700k or 2700x but I don't know if AMD can help with high refresh rates + 8700k I hear can also get pretty hot but I can't stream at 1080p quality on most games (Limited to 720p / 900p if I go 6 cores)

    tldr: I'm bashing my head against a wall since september trying to think what is the right CPU to buy.

    I9 9900k but with Vega 64 and Freesync to keep costs down whilst still be ace at 1440p gaming .
    1TB SSD for OS and games
    500gb nvme drive for Adobe and workload
    HDD for storage

    Case with USB C port to plug into board , high VRM count to handle CPU being clocked hard and worked hard for long periods of time

    Nvidia 2080 for more power and G-sync screen version
