Premiere editing - 8700k or 7820 for upgrade path on X99?

Hi Guys Opinions needed please.. Have priced up and was about to buy/build an i7 8700k machine, (1080ti, 32gb, 500 nvme etc)

Have now started thinking along the lines of going the extra for a i7 7820 build with x99 board, allowing an i9 upgrade path when prices drop sufficiently. this would mean trading down from the 1080ti to a 1060 or 1070 6gb to free up the budget for the extra cpu money.. (My premiere pro work does include using GPU plugins like lumetri, stabilse and luts)

The machine is primarily for editing 4k (100mbps h264 from drones) and some VR work. If I went 1060/70, I would hope to upgrade that at a later date to get back on the 1080ti (or 2280/1180 train, depending what they call the next gen!)

Thoughts? am I oversciencing, and should just get the 8700k, 1080ti and stop faffing about with the decisions? :P or is there some logic in the 7820 route...??

7820 Build: https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/46KLP3

8700 Build: https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/zwm3ZR

And for an alternative take, 2700x build : https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/user/Stoo1701/saved/NLpCyc

Appreciate your thoughts !!

If you want the best perfromance in premiere pro 7820x is the way to go. https://www.pugetsystems.com/labs/articles/Premiere-Pro-CC-2017-1-2-CPU-Performance-Core-i7-8700K-i5-8600K-i3-8350K-1047/

Difference between the 8700k and 2700x is very small according to the reviews i have seen. https://be.hardware.info/reviews/8151/10/amd-ryzen-2-a-x470-review-ryzen-5-2600x-ryzen-7-2700-a-2700x-+-6-x470-moederborden-benchmarks-content-creation-adobe-lightroom-photoshop-en-premiere

After checking gpu performance https://www.pugetsystems.com/labs/articles/Premiere-Pro-CC-2018-GPU-Performance-NVIDIA-Titan-V-12GB-1101/ difference between a gtx 1070 and gtx 1080ti is 13% on average (depending what you do).

So i guess it depends what you want do you want a stronger gpu or cpu? I would personally go with intel because they are longer on the market then the new ryzen cpu's so normally less bugs.

So if you don't game i7 7820x with gtx 1070/1060 if you do i7 8700k with gtx 1080ti/1080 is what i would do.

Go for the 8700 build

Both CPUs are good for your use, but I'd pick the 8700K. The X99 chipset is already 4 years old (though your part list says X299) and you would still pay more for such motherboards. The 6 cores and 12 threads of the 8700K are likely to be enough for anyone except those who do video editing as a full time job.

If you want to save money, pick cheap regular DDR4 instead of RGB models. Same goes for the RGB fans, since they are easy to upgrade later. If you really love RGB, you could change your CPU AIO-cooler from Corsair to NZXT Kraken X62 ;)

One of your part lists has 650W PSU, which should be enough, but I'd go 750W to be sure.

A small concern I have is your display. In video work a quality display is usually important, but 300€/$/£ 4K displays aren't usually such. Last time I checked even high-quality 2560×1440 IPS displays were 600-700€/$/£.
