Great processor, slightly faster clock speeds then the i5 8600k. Works great in my system with a RTX 2060.
Current pricing is cheaper than the i5 8600k making it worth the price.
Hard to get your hands on one; due to Intel shortages.
If the i5 9600k is ,quite a bit, more expensive than the i5 8600k then buy the i5 8600k.
