Need help with selecting out parts

I've been talking to a bunch of system integrators over the past few weeks and came up with a few options for a pc:

 

i7 10700f + 3070 for 1900 USD

5800x + 3060 for 1850k USD

 

Been looking at pc parts and prices for a long time now and would appreciate a fresh pair of eyes advising me on which is better. I want to game, use blender, premiere and after effects.

For Blender, go with 5800x. Cuz this way if you ever have the need to, you can upgrade to the 5950x or the upcoming zen 3+ chip (the one with 3d cache). If you play games a lot more and really want the frames... then the 3070 is better.

 

Also, avoid Dell.

If gaming is your first priority, I would go for a new gen CPU (AMD Ryzen 5 5600 or Intel Core i5 11600) and a RTX 3070,

Because a good graphics card and single core performance is important for gaming.

Well I dont care that much for upgradability since I'm looking at this as a long term investment. Taking that into consideration, which one would be a better choice?

Yea that's basically baked into my subconscious for the past 5-6 years now. But their laptops used to be pretty sweet around 2 years ago when I bought mine.

It kind of is but from the looks of it, I wont be able to get that since 11th gen and 5000 series is crazy expensive in my country. I made the choice of the 10700 when I compared it to the 5600x which are basically the same price but the 10700's 8 cores give me leeway for some intense workflows while still giving basically the same performance of the 5600x in productivity.

I prefer Ryzen cuz it's more efficient and a little bit faster in games. If you use CUDA in Blender, the you could also go with a 5600x and the 3070.

You have to see which programs you use and how different configs will affect your work/play
