Yes, the parts you have are compatible with the CPU you are looking to get, I guess you want to do some OC to the CPU so I recommend a Z370/Z390 mobo.
The 9700K costs more than the 8700K as you can see here https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07HHN6KBZ/ref=as_li_qf_asin_il_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=xm3a-20&creative=9325&linkCode=as2&creativeASIN=B07HHN6KBZ&linkId=b287f4b4139cfd697e3fc7c50de53792
if you want the CPU purely for gaming I recommend going with the 8700K and save some $.
I will give you here two options for mobos:
Z370 - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07BVP6JY9/ref=as_li_qf_asin_il_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=xm3a-20&creative=9325&linkCode=as2&creativeASIN=B07BVP6JY9&linkId=d53d92d49ec8311d628873f431cdec2b (it's now in a discount)
Z390 - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07HCY7K9L/ref=as_li_qf_asin_il_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=xm3a-20&creative=9325&linkCode=as2&creativeASIN=B07HCY7K9L&linkId=b91f603327b5bde9e7411df314eb22ac

I’m currently trying to boot my I-7 9700K with 16 GB of 3200Mhz RAM, it booted into BIOS once but now I only get yellow DRAM light on Mobo...
