Built a machine in 2014. 5960x / Asus X99 Deluxe / 64gb DDR4. etc... The motherboard was about $370.00
I'm looking at building a new machine and due to that build I was naturally looking at the X299 Deluxe-II. But it goes for $500.00!

So my question is for my build what motherboard should I go for and what is the real difference in jumping up to the 500 dollar Deluxe-II.

Build is a Rendering (V-Ray) / Modeling / Development / Gaming system - 9940x / 64 GB DDR4 / M.2 / Dual RTX2080ti (mostly for RT V-Ray but also gaming) and perhaps future proof for expanding that(?).

No current plans to overclock. Never had luck with rendering while overclocking (the option is always nice, though)

For my purposes is the Deluxe-II worth shooting for? Is the STRIX more than good enough? I also see a TUF option.

Thanks.
