should i wait for i7 9700k or just buy i7 8700k

Since you already have a great processer by today's standards, here's what I would do if I were you:
1. Wait for the Intel 9000 series chips to launch.
2. Wait for AMD to counter with their R7 2800(x) variants.
I bet this will force Intel's hand to lower their prices, which are very over priced.

Personally i think the 9xxx series are going to be overpriced even if amd brings out a r7 2800x(which are a rumor)i doubt intel will drop the prices enough to fight vs amd cause of fabrication shortages.
