Looking for an Intel gaming/streaming build with a budget of 2500. I do not need a monitor, headset, keyboard, or a mouse
Hi, can I ask what monitor, resolution and Hz rating, you have is it freesync or gsync? Can influence part choices. Also, can I ask why the specific desire for intel Vs AMD? Finally, do you have a second monitor for streaming?
I have dell S2716DGR 1440p, 144Hz, gsync
I just prefer Intel vs AMD
I currently don’t have a 2nd monitor but am getting one soon
At 1440p there is very little between intel and AMD, and you also get 16 threads for gaming+streaming overhead. The price differential (you'll pay $300 more for an i9 9900k build with similar 16 thread overhead) also allows for aesthetic treatment, RGB etc or cash left for a second monitor or even both.

Intel build, drop a GPU tier, but more money left for refinements.
this is as much as you get without making any unreasonable upgrades. (i.e. getting a 9900k) oh, and why no 2080 ti (1. its overkill 2. its just not worth the price)
