Hey guys, it's time to build another Hackintosh!

My first one (i7-5820K, X99-UD4, 32GB RAM) works fine and I want to build another one for my 2nd appartment (I need to travel between 2 places a lot).

Right now, I have:
- Some HDD/SSDs
- 750W PSU
- GTX 980Ti

I don't really need Mojave, High Sierra is good enough since I only use the OSX Install to cut 1080/60 videos.
I considered a Ryzen 3K before, but it seems an Intel is a better choice due to QuickSync...

Now, is it a good idea to get the cheaper 9700K instead of the 9900K (100$ difference approx) or does FCPX profit from SMT a lot?
