I do not automatically discount the value of someone else building a PC for you..there's something to be said for it, especially if your time is exceptionally valuable, but even I have a hard time seeing the value proposition here.
For that much money and plenty of big horse power hardware, they added a freakin DVD-R/RW optical drive in 2018? I know a lot of people are not even bothering with any optical drives but at least use a Blu Ray if adding one.
And what about for storage just one only 2 TB HDD when market is filled with 8 - 10 TB HDDs as a new normal?
Designing a combo top end gaming/serious workstation PC is like trying to build a combo top end sports car/professional grade pickup truck. Even after spending ridiculous amounts of money you still end up having to make compromises because the two target markets require such different hardware. If you have an $8000 budget and need a workstation and a gaming pc, build 2 pc's. Do you really want to have a steam library of games installed on the same computer you use for professional work related apps?
If I had $8000 and wanted both a workstation and a gaming PC, I'd just get a high-score count Xeon, lots of ECC RAM, and both a Geforce/Radeon and Quadro/Firepro. Use an HDMI switch to connect both the gaming GPU and the pro GPU to the same monitor.
And heck, with that kind of money, you could get two top-of-the-line NVMe drives and install a different OS on each one.

It does kind of look like a Transformer doesn't it? :lol:[/quotemsg]
At first glance I thought that was a decepticon logo. Then I thought well what decepticon would look like that if they transformed into what looks like a suitcase. I came up with Megtron. It really does look like that once it's in your head.
