Thinking about switching over to AMD
> I was looking at the Ryzen 9 5950x. Unless it's for very specific games where those specific games gain a huge fps increase from 5000 series Ryzen, keep your 9900k and wait for next gen of intel/ryzen and see how those end up, you likely won't see much, if any, increase in FPS at 1440p going from a 9900k to a 5950x.
