I’m a video editor / 3D artist about to buy a new system and I can’t decide whether to go with a TRX40 or WRX80 system.
3975wx v 3970x
128gb ram (8 Sticks) vs (4 Sticks)
Designare vs Gigabyte WRX80
2000 Watt PSU
3 x GPUS - 1 x 3090 2 x 3080ti’s
8TB Raid AIC Card (4x XPG Blades 2tb)
Essentially its about £1200 difference between the two systems.
while it would be more cost effective to go TRX40 I would be hindered to 2 x GPUS with the number or PCIE Slots and wanting to use both TB3 and AIC which come included with the motherboard yet another additional cost for the wrx80.
WRX80 would be a build in which I could keep adding cards if need be and not worry about the PCIE Lanes but after see how much of a difference it is I’m now stuck with my choice.
Any advice would be much appreciated!
