If this is just for gaming, do you really think you'll see much of a difference from a 9700k? Are the likes of an i9 / 5900x really necessary?

Sounds like you have a solid setup already. This'll sure be an expensive 4 or 5 FPS.

If your current frame rate is smooth as butter, you won't even notice. Why not wait until you notice the odd stutter? Then upgrade it and you'll notice the improvement.

It sounds to me like you're just bored and want to spend your money on something.

Good man for thinking it through. Too easy to get suckered by the upgrade bug!
