If you look at sheer gaming performance, then the Intel Core i7-9700K and the i9-9900K edge past the Ryzen 3000 parts. However, you should be able to push 150 FPS in every game with the Ryzen 5 3600X and get much better performance in other multi-threaded workloads such as content creation, encoding, and video editing. You can go with the Ryzen 7 too but when it comes to gaming, the 3600X is every bit as capable.
