Hey @pastrychef, I am having hard time in deciding; can you help me to choose. I want to use this build purely for Warstation and video production purpose. And I am not a fan of Windows and wanna stick with Mac OS but can't afford Mac Pro, the only workstation type I like as it is customizable. So I have been reading and researching on lots of posts and X299 build with i9 X series processor is looking really tempting to me for this build. Do you think I will better off performance wise if I choose X-299 + i9 X combo over Z490 + i9 K? My main concern is stability and video production and rendering performance. Sorry if the message is long but I am thinking to spend a bit more if I get the right build for the purpose.
I guess it really depends on how many cores you really need. If you only need 10 cores, I think that the Z490+i9-10900K would be easier to get running on macOS and easier to update and maintain. If you need more than 10 cores, your only choice is to go X299 right now.
