I might recommend a 2066 Intel CPU if you think you'd benefit from the extra cores.

Thanks for the recommendations so far, any reason to go Intel over AMD (Ryzen)?

at this price point there is just money to buy a 9900k witch is better for most if not all the things you will be using it for.

It has a high CFM cooler, a motherboard with Thunderbolt 3, fast RAM (64GB as requested), and lots of storage (9TB).

(I also picked that specific 2080ti because it has a higher base/boost clock)
