I am pretty new to PC space and configuring an all out build with 3090.

 

I have my reason to choose a pre-build over building a PC myself(Main one being a unit warranty, I don't permanently live in the US, and being able to handle all warranties trough a single source is much easier for me)

 

Seeing the LTT videos on pre-builds, I have decided to go with IBuyPower, and have configured 3 options of the same PC, and wanted to know if its better to change something or not.

https://www.ibuypower.com/Store/Intel-X299-Core-i9-Configurator/W/1135144

 

Since I am pretty new to this, I wanted to find out if Intel has any redeeming qualities except the reliability right now?

Also how much worse is Threadripper for gaming compared to Ryzen 9?

 

P.S. I know about the upcoming AMD launch, but cannot wait for it. I have been a Mac/Console user my whole life, so Custom PC is a new topic for me. That is why after my own research online, I wanted to know what is the best call here from people, who spend more time with this stuff.

Trying to stay under the current Threadripper build that I have provided(I know that it is with a 3080, I am using it as a reference mostly, so this is a target price w 3080)

Gamer by night, coder/video editor by day(Most likely will also run hackintosh on it)

Ahh I see just wanted to make sure you weren’t addicted to it because waiting for zen 3 could really help.

In that case, can you wait for rdna2? I’m not completely sure if hackintosh is the same as regular macOS compatibility wise, but macOS uses amd cards and not nvidia ones. Also, as electronics wizard said, go intel as that is what macOS supports/uses.

Its done trough VM, you can even make it run on Radeon + Ryzen w. no performance penalties

3090 would be a bit pointless. Why not just get a Mac and bootcamp it?

I am making a Windows machine for gaming/work that is fully maxed and its the main priority, running MacOS on it is a secondary thing, if I need to quickly build a heavy Xcode Project for example fast(It benefits from more ram and more CPU juice). I am daily driving a mid 2019 mac and not planning to upgrade it until the move to ARM is done.

Video editing would be better on the CPU side though and the 3090 will have MASSIVE diminishing returns over the 3080. Plus it's more a CAD card vs video rendering/gaming just the the amount of RAM on it.

I am set on 3090 for many reasons)))) Mostly was curious in terms of CPU and overall choice of Motherboard and Ram, but I'm 100% set on 3090

It's a waste of money, what programs are you using?
