The 9900K is still the best gaming CPU, probably best you read the benchmarks. Also the GPU TDP is actually the whole board and not just the chip.
Okay yeah, I retract my statement about it beating it in most everything. 9900K still has a very slight advantage when it comes to games. But IMO 3700X is so damned close that I can't see myself ever bothering with a 9900K. I mean, you'd be spending an extra $170 plus the cost of a cooler for what? 10 extra FPS, when running most games on 1080p at high/ultra settings? Most games are already well over 80 FPS at that point, so I just don't see the big difference between 97 FPS, and 89 FPS (Tomb Raider). And I'm pretty sure most review sites are using AMD's stock cooler vs who knows what they've bought out of pocket to cool their 9900K. I think a 9900K should be ran at whatever is equal to the stock AMD cooler, and not some $100 cooler.
I'll probably wind up upgrading to a 3900X, get almost as good gaming performance as a 9900K, and be better at doing non-gaming things to boot. Or I'll go the cheap route and get a 3700X. Just waiting on average turn time benchmarks for 4X games like Civ 6, and Endless Legend.
