Advice ON PC UPGRADE

Hi I am upgrading my pc which i made about i think almost 8 years ago and it is time for a upgrade and would really appreciate any help i can get. 

 

PC is mainly used for 3d modelling software like 3ds max,UE4,Substance Painter amd etc 

I occasionally play game too.

 

My Budget is around £1000 but if required will go over a little becuase i would just like to upgrade it know so it will not need touching again for a while and can concentrate on looking for a ultra wide monitor down the future. 

 

Current PC Spec

Intel Core i5 3700k 

Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo 

Corsair XMS3 16gb DDR3 1600 MHz

Coolermaster GX-Series 700W Lite 

Asrock  Z77 Pro-M 

Asus Strix 1070 which i brought to replace my AMD XFX 7950 Double D

500gb SSD

1TB SSHD

1TB HDD

 

Upgrade I am planning on Buying 

i7 9700k 

Asus Strix z390 -E GFaming OR   Gigabyte Z390 Aoeus PRO WIFI

Team Group Vulcan T-Force 16gb DDR4 3000MHX ( currently £108 on overclockers inlcluding postage but not sure if i should go for it) https://www.overclockers.co.uk/team-group-vulcan-t-force-16gb-2x8gb-ddr4-pc4-24000c16-3000mhz-dual-channel-kit-grey-tlgd416g30-my-087-tg.html

PSU not sure if i should upgrade 

 

Parts I have Brought Already 

Samsung Evo 970 1TB NVME 

WD Blue 1tb m.2 SSD which i mistook for nvme Drive  but was thinking maybe keep it for storage drive or might end up returning it. 

 

Any Suggestions would be very helpful

 

Thnaks

Do you have a budget in mind, and is this going to include any peripherals?
Is it going to be a workstation, a gaming rig, or both?

9700k performs like a factory delidded 8700k, so there's that.

 

My vote goes to the Gigabyte Aorus Pro Wifi

 

do upgrade the PSU, not for wattage but quality.

Hi budget wise I am thinking £1000 but will go a little over If I have too 

 

I use it for 3d modelling mainly and do play games on it occasionally

Been looking online and for some reason the i7 8700k and 9700k and near the same price range which i thought was quite odd I was expecting the 8700k to be cheaper
