I am currently using a Ryzen 7 1800X with 32gb 2400mhz ram and a gtx 1080. It's very underwhelming for the work I do and its basically a toy and less a tool at this point.

I do 3D animation, 3D modeling, full stack application development, game development, video editing, 2D animation, and heavy gaming (I play anything and everything that's multiplayer and requires a good cpu and beefy gpu).

My budget is $4.5k and im leaning towards 64GB of Trident Z RGB 3200mhz as a must but everything else is up in the air. My current pc has a 1tb ssd filled with a mix of games and workstation applications so id prefer to separate pleasure and work between 2 drives. Im not sure if i want to stick with a 8 core cpu and risk weakness in the workstation area or get 14+ core beast that can be overclocked to accommodate frequency hungry games.

Im happy to hear all ideas and while case doesnt really matter i prefer Phanteks, Corsair, and NZXT over all other brands. Id love to here ideas, full lists, and even insights as to what direction i should take the build considering the use. Thanks!
 
I have actually been looking into builds after making this post, and im definitely going with Intel because im gonna be doing some beefy overclocking. With that said, I noticed you added a decent amount of storage, which at my fault, wasnt discussed in the post. I actually have a 10TB storage server on my network so I really only Need SSD's for software/windows. Be that as it may, ive been looking into upgrading my pc for a few months now. What are your opinions of this build?

Y do you have to go for 8 rams sticks? Your total for memory goes to 580 bucks whereas mine is only 410 bucks.

The X299 is a quad channel setup. So 4 ram sticks in the appropriate slot is more than enough.

The mobo u chose is an older version of the X299. The latest or updated design comes with beefed up vrm with bigger heatsinks and heat pipe. Look at the aorus master pic, it has a heat pipe running from the io shroud heatsink to the top vrm heatsink. You said you will be overclocking heavily, so a mobo with beefy vrm and cooling is a must. So I would recommend the aorus master.

Like I already said, I chose the corsair mp510 cuz it's fast and also has a vastly superior endurance/life time than the 970evo/pro. It's also 30 bucks cheaper than the 970. I would also suggest the hp ex920 500 ssd instead of the 860. X299 got multiple m.2 slots and the ex920 is cheaper than the 860 and is much faster cuz its a nvme drive.

I see that you have downscaled to the 2080. If you feel that's all you need, don't really need the 2080ti, well and good.

Pick a case with better airflow. When you overclock the cpu, 300w+ TDP is not uncommon. Same goes for the 2080, another 300w of heat output.

The corsair mp510 has the highest endurance in its class. Best for your work tasks.



Ryzen 2950X boosts upto 4.4ghz in gaming and sustained 4.15ghz on all cores. If you want even more all core performance, you need to switch to Intel.
