Yes it is a decent build the Ryzen chipset May offer better value if that is what your after and I’d go for a better gpu if you can afford it :)

Ryzen is better than Intel for workstation tasks... and it's cheaper.

My first suggestion would be swapping out the 9600K/Z390 platform for a Ryzen 3600 with a B450 motherboard, or you could even go for an X570 if you'd like (the catch with B450 is that you'll need to flash the BIOS in order to run 3rd gen Ryzen). It will offer SMT (hyper-threading), compared to the 9600K, giving you quite a bit more performance (closer to a 8700K/9700K). The 9600K really isn't a great value at the moment, and you might start noticing stuttering in more CPU intensive games already (though maybe not with a 1660 Ti, as it might not stretch the i5 that far).  To go with the 3600, I'd suggest going for a faster memory kit, such as 3000MHz or 3200MHz, and you could also go for a 2x16GB kit, instead of the 4x8GB, just to offer you more upgradability options in the future.

 

The Straight Power 11 PSU from be quiet! is a really great unit, but you won't need anything close to 750W to power the system, you could easily drop down to a 550W variant (in its current config, that build's not going to consume more than 300-325W at full 100% CPU/GPU load).

 

Also, I'd personally drop the Optane drive, as I don't think it would offer that great of a performance improvement for the price, unless you just have too much money to spend (again, my personal opinion).

 

If you do decide to drop the Optane drive, go for a lower wattage PSU and switch the 9600K for a 3600 (though pricing will probably be fairly similar when you include the board and faster RAM), you might have enough extra cash to upgrade that GPU to something like a Radeon RX 5700 or a GeForce RTX 2060 Super, which would give a nice boost of performance over the 1660 Ti.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

EVGA G3 thread, BR/BT threadSeasonic Focus thread, S12II/M12II thread, Userbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions

If you do workstation stuff, Ryzen's extra cores are a better value than an i5.

It simply what you value if you are using adobe products intel does perform better... if you want intel go intel... however you asked for an opinion I gave mine... I use amd in premiere and photoshop and I haven’t had any problems or ‘bad’ performance. It seems the build you posted is what you want so get that :)
