PC upgrade

Hi, i would like your input about a pc upgrade.
My current specs are:

i5 4670k
16gb ram
GTX 1060 6gb
1 ssd 256gb drive for OS and programs
1TB hdd for the rest.

I'm looking in upgrading my cpu/mb/ram combo and my budget is 1.000€ (including a new 256gb M.2 ssd drive). The programs that i am using/plan to use are the usual suspects (blender, maya, quixel suite, substance painter, z brush). What do you think? Should i go the 8700k way or R7 chips still better?

Here is a possible setup:
1 Samsung SSD 960 EVO 250GB, M.2 (MZ-V6E250BW)
1 Intel Core i7-8700K, 6x 3.70GHz, boxed ohne Kühler (BX80684I78700K)
1 G.Skill RipJaws V schwarz DIMM Kit 32GB, DDR4-3200, CL16-18-18-38 (F4-3200C16D-32GVK)
1 Gigabyte Z370 Aorus Ultra Gaming

Imo, you should go for a classic sata ssd with a larger capacity, ex. this one https://geizhals.de/crucial-mx300-5...hloc=at&hloc=de. Sequential reads/writes are useful in transferring large files mostly. In all other tasks, a classic sata ssd should be on par with a "faster" nvme.
