CPU or GPU, which should I upgrade?

I can Budget for either the Ryzen 3950X instead of the 3900X or I can budget for a 2080TI instead of a 2080S PC is mostly going to be used for Gaming but I may tinker with coding or 3D animation in the future. Using Userbenchmark.com I'm leaning more towards the TI, since it has a larger difference in performance. Please Do not suggest I go with Intel. I've already made up my mind on AMD thank you. https://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/AMD-Ryzen-9-3900X-vs-AMD-Ryzen-9-3950X/4044vs4057?fbclid=IwAR2-my4m4eWFnTUFsI4W-Y4qw-NwIiieZrndZdZKbtO66PeGi14_eB_6fsQ

Depends on what is used most in your workloads (if it’s CPU; 3950X +2080S, GPU;2080TI + 3900X

Since the 2080 Super isn’t dissimilar to the TI, I’d get that and a 3900X, if it was me

Not sure if it makes a difference but ill be running games in 4k

At 4K, you’ll be GPU bound (GPU will be placed under more strain than the CPU)

3900X and 2080TI should be quite enough for 4K

Alright, Thank you. I appreciate it!
