Ya ya ya I know the reviews arent 10/10 but the 8700k is discountinued, you might as well get a new chip instead of one at the end of its life cycle.
When it comes to performance, is the 9900k, which is $170 more than the 8700k, really worth it?

The temps are roughly the same and the 240 has way better case compatibility. Also, not sure if you are just going with a theme with NZXT...
Yeah, I saw some reviews saying the exact same, but for an extra $8ish, I thought, "why not". And yes, I am going with an NZXT themed build just because I like their CAM software and RGB compatibility.

I really wanted to have 2 monitors because I do use them for when I'm doing graphic design stuff, or have discord on one and my game on the other. Would you recommend 1440?
