So I decided to treat myself to an upgrade for productivity, gaming, my development work and in the future potentially some windows vm gaming.
Tossing up purchasing a Radeon Pro to throw into it for a linux host and pass through the 2080ti. Will be adding another 2x16Gb kit of RAM in coming months.
