It depends on the software you'll be using and whether or not it takes advantage of multiple threads.

A suggestion with your post, if people list products worth 2000 dollars, it'll probably become around 2500-3000 dollars approximately, we don't get parts for cheap here(India). Try giving them a site to compare to, and state the pricing in Indian currency.

What country?

Does the size or noise matter?

If you're in the US you don't really need to spend $2K to get a decent PC unless you want to go overkill on the CPU/GPU(s)

How often do you do rendering in blender?

I edit my posts a lot, Twitter is @LordStreetguru just don't ask PC questions there mostly...
 

Spoiler

 

What is your budget/country for your new PC?

 

what monitor resolution/refresh rate?

 

What games or other software do you need to run?

So, you'll be using these softwares. For simulations and rendering, I would suggest a threadripper build, as I don't find a single GPU doing any good when rendering. So, a threadripper build will be good for those tasks, IMO.

Blender will use whatever GPUs you give it, but having the 12 core "Cheap" CPU in general is nice

@Streetguru I don't think he can afford multiple GPU's, they're too pricey in India.

I've rendered a few scenes with blender cycles, with my GPU and CPU and I didn't really see that big a difference, maybe a few seconds.

Then I have no idea what parts you can buy or their prices

 

Probably look for a 1920X/1950X

Get a high quality 1000W PSU or better because you can just throw in 2-3 GPUs for blender at least, dunno about your other software.

Add in a hard drive later.

Look for used titan Xs, 1070tis or above, Vega 56, or Vega FE cards

For an idea of what to look for

ya

Then the 16 core X399 Chip should be fine, at least find one decent  modern GPU though like a 1070ti, maybe even just a used 980ti

I forgot the cooler, look for the Thermalright Silver Arrow TR4 for X399, it's the best air cooler by far. Otherwise any TR4 cooler with a large base for the entire IHS will be fine.
