Best combo workstation/gaming processor/motherboard

I'm looking to replace my current I7 7700k for a workstation processor. I plan to still be gaming on this new PC but I'm going back to school to become a software developer. I am also starting work on my own game. I know this will be a lot of work considering I'll be making all of my own assets. So I'm looking for a beast to handle many functions but doesn't suck too badly when I'm gaming. Any ideas?

 

Current build is

Processor   I7 7700K

MB              Asus Z270-E

Memory      Corsair Dominator and Vengance total 32 GB

Graphics     Asus 1070  8GB OC

Storage       Samsung Pro 960 M.2 512GB

                    2 Toshiba 1GB HHD

Cooling        Corsair H100I Pro

 

[edited]

PSU             Corsair RM650I

9900k?

Think carefully before getting a Xeon...

Yeah I thought I'd go I9. I just wasn't sure which one was the best bang for the buck. Also if I'd have to switch out the PSU or not. I plan to get a 2080 as well.

What about threadripper? Thought they are good for these kinda loads. Not sure on your budget either

I'm willing to go threadripper I've just always been on Intel but AMD can lure me away if the performance and longevity is there. Budget depends if I have to replace the whole PC or just some components
