I recently upgraded my GTX 970 to RTX 2080 ti and still am using my 4 year old i5-6600k; I mostly game. Should I upgrade to the i7-9700k? I game at 2560x1440.
 
Same socket, different architecture and chipset.

You 100% need a H370 or Z370 motherboard to use a 9700K - you CANNOT use your current motherboard.

Go to your motherboard manufacturer's website to confirm compatibility for yourself.
