    the i5 may hold it back slightly, but you could always upgrade to the 7700k without switching motherboard, either would be fine really as you can upgrade later.

    @maur0 why the xeon vs i9 specifically? and why not a separate post?

    id take the i9 and 2060 out of the two set choices. the xeon would hold back the 2080ti a bit. its near a 10 year old cpu with pcie 2.0 if i remember correctly.

    The processor limits the minimum framerate you will get.
    It will do the same with all gfx cards, unless GPU limited. (there may be a small difference between AMD and NVidia)
    How it will perform depends on the game.

    Running dual cards uses more CPU.
