Well, Threadripper is 27 days away as I am writing this. The 1950x is a 16 core 32 thread behemoth that is ideal for 3D artists, editors, and other professionals.
I've originally was going to go for the mighty R7 1700, but Threadripper's pricing made me consider this processor. My budget was originally 3k, but I feel like this build is worth the extra cost.
Those coolers that are compatible with threadripper aren't something that I want to use because it doesn't cover the whole IHS, so by the time I get my money in hopefully there'll be more options.
VEGA seems like a card I would benefit with, because I would be using 3D programs extensively and I deal with a lot of large textures. I'd opt for more storage, but I didn't want to completely cripple financially. I am also very unsure about the case. I love the silver, but I don't know if it's for me. I don't want to NZXT s340 and stuff. Looks nice, but it's not for me. I need a case with at least one 5.25" bay.
I don't know, I threw it together, maybe you guys can get something better out of this. The RAM has to stay, and so does the M.2 SSD.
