Budget (including currency): 2500ish (If there was a good reason to go higher I might consider it.)

Country: US

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Initially for fort nite, but long term it will be an ESXI host

Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): 

My son needs a decent rig to play games on with his friends before he leaves for 2 years. After that it will be converted to an ESXI server for use in my house. I already have a 1080Ti that will use with it for gaming, and also have an Adaptec controller and drives I will put in raid configuration once I convert it. Here are the parts I am thinking to buy, just need to get feed back on compatibility and also if you think something could be better or if something is missing please offer input. Thank you for your help!

That is not compatible. X570 and threadripper don't work together.

There's no threadripper in this build.

That is not compatible. X570 and threadripper don't work together. I would also recommend a better quality and higher wattage PSU for a threadripper build. I also don't believe that AIO is threadripper compatible either.

 

I don't know much about servers or what's required, but I feel that it's a little excessive and not necessary. But I'll let someone who knows what their doing recommend you something better. But in the mean time half this isn't compatible.

the r9 3950x is an am4 cpu not tr4

The server will be running multiple VM's. Some will be capturing RTSP video feeds based on motion, another will be converting the videos from AVI to MP4. I also have a minecraft server that my kids use to play on with 3 maps that run on it in different processes. The plan is also to play around with object detection on some of them as well. I currently have an 8 thread i7 ESXI machine that is doing the video capture and conversion as well as the minecraft server. Lets just say when it is converting multiple videos and capturing it can get to over 80% CPU usage often. My hope is to run them in parallel so that I can play with high CPU processes without having to worry that I am dropping frames of video.

That's out of my realm then dog. I like me some video games and nice hardware.
