Honestly, I don't know which build would be suited for my needs. I have a maximum of 3000$, but when you account for taxes, the budget is 2800$

The I9 has good performance, but goin Ryzen would allow to get more stuff.

Ryzen Build: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/JD473F

I9 Build: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/k3XLm8 ( Slapped to together with little thought )

I do very heavy 3D modeling and animating and I deal with a lot of very large textures ( A lot of 4k and 8k textures ). I use Autodesk Maya, 3DS MAX, Scaleform, Mudbox, and Inventor. I also use a little of Adobe Premier Pro, and Adobe Photoshop.

I also do play a lot games, but I amn't looking to go 144Hz 1440p. 60FPS on 4k or 1440p or even 1080p is just fine, but with the I9 build, I wouldn't be able to afford a decent monitor.

I am entirely committed on the Ryzen build as far as that parts list goes, so please do not advise changing any parts from it. it's the I9 build I want opinions on.

Thank you for your time.

Go with Ryzen. The 7900X is overpriced. If you need that performance wait for threadripper. 16 cores 32 threads for $950.

Ryzen no questions asked. Or wait for Threadripper.

I am struggling between the two.

When OC'd the I9 has extremely impressive performance.

But with Ryzen, I get a better looking build.

Eh, I may stick with Ryzen just because of that awesome case.

You're also paying A LOT for a Case. I wonder why?

Aesthetics. There's only two cases I will consider, it's the one listed and the Mastercase 5t

Get the Case from your Intel build. You're going to save a lot of money. I would also wait for Threadripper.
