I’m currently running a i5 7400 & in the future I’d like to upgrade my cpu.. Could I go with a i7 8700 or maybe an i7 9700.. they all use an 1151 socket.. I was just wondering if it could be possible to do without running into any issues.

I'd wait a few months to see where Intel's 500-series motherboard pricing will settle and for more board reviews to come out, then get an i5-11400(F) with whatever B560 motherboard has everything you need on it. If you have DDR4 in your current system, you can reuse that until you can get something more appropriate (ex.: 16GB of 3200-16 if you don't already have 16+GB) for a reasonable price.
