There's not a huge reason to buy a i5-8400 (max boost 4GHz) as overclocked the i5-3570K is relatively close in single-threaded performance. You're much better off with a Ryzen 5 2600 or an unlocked i5-8600k/i5-9600K let alone a i7-8700k/i7-9700k.

Also if you go with a Ryzen CPU you will have an upgrade path.
