Hi everyone,

After a multi-year delay, I am thinking of building my new system soon, and besides five-boxing WoW, I am interested in trying my hand at streaming. I am wondering if the i5 9600K with six cores or the i7-9700k with eight cores is the way to go. Then there is the i7-8600k with six cores and twelve threads. I want to save money if possible, so if the i5 will do what I need the cores to do, I will be happy.

I did do a search on this topic but the threads I found were mostly older and I am not sure applicable.

Thanks in advance for any pointers,
