Being directed away from AMD Thread ripper 2950x to Intel for a system for Video Editing, Animation, Podcasting, Visual Effects, 3D Animation 3D modelling, CAD, interior Design, Both Rendering/Encoding and designing. So both single and multi thread.

So Premier, After Effects Photoshop, Vectorworks, Solidworks, Rhino, V Ray, Autodesk Inventor, 3D Studio Max, Maya, Softimage, Z Brush, Mudbox, Cinema 4 D, Modo, Autocad, Audtion etc

If going with

A I9 9900x processor
(Not sure if the have Scan UK professionally over clock it or have faster memory as want it stable, logn lasting and warranteed etc.

Quadro RTX 4000 GPU

Samsung Evo 970 Plus 1tb (Operatign system drive)

May get a ssd for use as a scratch drive but most likely later date

A pair of Seagate Barracuda Pro 4tb drives in Raid 1 Mirror Array


Cost wise not sure whether to go with Corasair vengence LPX 3000mhz 32gb RAM to double up at a later date to lower cost now (what is a fast but safe stable seed) or 64gb (trying to keep it around £3500 ish)

and it looks like there is a newer version of Windows 10 64bit Pro with some added features.





But a key decision is what motherboards and the

Asus x299 Prime A Deluxe II and Gigabyte Designare Ex both look good but there seems to be an issue with forced sharing of lanes unlike the threadripper boards.


As said looking for raid and the operating system on the M2 drive.


any advice on this choice please and the build in general...


also what power... I think its down for the 850what Seasonic Focua P;lu 850 watt gold power at present

DDR4-3200MHz or higher and ofc an SSD for the main OS/app drive. I'd go with the Designare board from Gigabyte or the WS board from Asus. The WS from Asus can be seen under the X299 SAGE or the X299 Pro. You could also look at the MSI X299 MEG Creation.
