I'm currently thinking of upgrading my pc (budget about $3000). I'll be using it for 3D modelling, SFX, rendering fluid simulations, VR hopefully, gaming, then just basic tasks. Here's what I was thinking for specs:
CPU: AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1920X Processor
GPU: MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Gaming X 8GB
Memory: Corsair Vengeance LPX CMK16GX4M2A2133C13 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 Black x 2 for 32gb
MBD: MSI X399 Gaming Pro Carbon AC Motherboard
Storage: Samsung EVO 250gb SSD
Seagate Barracuda 1tb hd
PSU: Corsair CX650 650W 80 Plus Power Supply
Cooling: Be Quiet! Dark Rock Pro 3 CPU Cooler
Case: NZXT S340 Mid Tower Case Black

Would this be good enough for what I want to do? Also, will it last the next few years?
Can anyone see incompatibilities?
Thanks!!

Good advice, but will the 8th gen core be compatible with the motherboard? Also, Intel hasn't yet released anything on desktop processors
Thanks for the PSU, the one I had was kind of a place holder as the parts are subject to change :)

Thank you, any in particular?
 

It needs a lower cost Z370. http://www.guru3d.com/news-story/intel-z370-express-chipset-motherboard-list-surfaces.html

I noticed that the coffee lake processors only have 6 cores to the 7820x's 8. Will that affect rendering? Also, would it be worth investing in a Threadripper instead?
