Actually a improvement in the price department compared to the K variant, but i STILL don't recommend i9s.

Its fine. the OUTSTANDING 8 core 16 thread processor is good but comes at a high cost. its extremely good but the price tag makes it useless for cheap gamers which rather go to the i5-9600K or i3-9350KF. if you have the money. buy the i7-9700KF. the i7 version is just about 10% slower but you most likely wont notice it.
