Can you advise on this Content Creation Build I am trying to finaise in regards use with Solidworks and Keyshot please?

Will the AMD Ryzen 9 Threadripper 3960x 24 core be fine or is it essential for the 500 more 3970x with 32?
Budget wise prefer the cheaper at the moment

Should I go for a Quadro RTX4000 or 3XS EVGA NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti BLOWER Graphics Card for the software and use below?

How important is it to have a separate operating system, Project and Scratch disk SSD?

Also Which TRX40 Motherboard (looking at brand and model reliability, bios, durability etc as well as features)

  • ASUS PRIME TRX40-PRO
  • ASUS ROG STRIX TRX40-E GAMING
  • ASRock TRX40 Taichi
  • Gigabyte TRX40 Designare
  • MSI TRX40 Creator



Custom build supplier companies like Scan uk and PC Specilist seem to be pushing the ASUS Prime Pro, Rog Strric and Zenth Extreme boards whilst feature wise the MSI Creator, Gigabyte Designare and Taichi boards seem to be inbetween price with more features but are their unrelaible etc?
