Budget:
[$5000]

Expectations:
[I am looking for a computer that will provide a long service life without requiring upgrades every year to operate. I am also looking to try out a couple of programs that I am not familiar with beyond the ones that I need to actually run.]

Usage:
[The official use of this computer is going to be mostly engineering and rendering of products for the company I work for. Currently I am using Solid works and an extension called exact flat. I can not change that program and therefore will not be able to go with a GeForce Graphics Card. I would like the ability to run Adobe Premier Pro and Unreal Engine. As I am personally buying this computer outside of my company I will also be playing games on it.]

Saved Ticket #: [4527915]

Specifications: Really just looking to make sure there isn't something glaringly inadequate about the machine I am wanting built in the ticket number but if someone has a better suggestion that fits my budget the 2 most important specifications are [64GB DDR5,
Nvidia RTX A4000]

i'd steer clear of those Quadro replacement workstation graphics cards if you're hoping for dual usage between work and play.  that A4000 is basically the same core card as an RTX 3070ti, with a slightly different configuration.  the 3070ti also uses GDDR6X ram compared to the A4000 use of GDDR6 ram (it's about a 6GB/s bandwidth speed difference).  the 3070ti has higher base clock speeds on its core and memory.  the A4000 does pack more memory, which aids workloads.  the A4000 also comes with single slot blower style cooler. 

bottom line the A4000 is going to be a lower performer to both the 3070ti and the 3070, prob closer to the 3060ti. 

what monitor resolution were you planning on gaming at?  that will prob be the defining factor for which graphics to recommend for your system. 

you might also have to under volt that cpu to prevent thermal throttling or go with a more robust cooling config (the Velox PRO supports a 420mm rad in the front and either a 240mm/280mm in the ceiling).
