I want to build a new computer in the coming months. But I am having a hard time choosing between these two CPU's. I only play a handful of games like PUBG, League, and Minecraft. I also rarely stream. My workload is light as well; Mainly consisting of coding and compiling projects that are only a few hundred MB.

Which one is overall better?
I currently have a i7 3770k.
Is it worth the upgrade or should I wait another year for Intel 9700K or Ryzen 2800X?

Personally wouldn't bother as you don't stream and have a light workload unless you just want to spend money.

The 1800x would be a better choice if you ask me.

Neither. 8700k is over priced right now, and the 1800x doesn''t make sense over the 1700(x) anyway. Your 3770k is more than adequate, I'd hold on to that for a litte longer and upgrade in another generation or 2. Hopefully by then, you should be able to get reasonably priced DDR4 RAM and an 8 core i7, or higher IPC Ryzen.
