Which PC to choose


I want to upgrade my pc, I'm gonna be using it for work mostly with photoshop, premiere pro, davinci resolve, after effects, nuke and cinema4D (for now), I dont want it to play games (not even from time to time) so I don't care about its gaming performance, neither I want to build it myself, after some research I've found two builds that are OK with my budget and what I think to be enough for my necessities, of course I'm not expert in the matter that's why I want some help in order to decide

Option 1

Intel core i7 9700k 3,6Ghz
32Gb DDR4 HyperX
SSD PCIe NVMe 512gb
HDD 3tb
GeForce RTX 2080Ti 11Gb

Option 2
Threadripper 1920X 3,5Ghz
32GB 2400MHZ DDR4
SSD 480GB 550MB/s
3TB 7200RPM 64MB SATA 3
Nvidia Quadro P4000 8GB GDDR5X

For me the Intel.

For stability and less fiddling I use Intel. Also I no longer consider Seagate drives.

Tell the speed of this ram.

Tell the make and model of the psu.

32GB 3200MHZ DDR4
800W PFC ACTIVE +85 energy efficient (compatible with x 2 GTX 1080)

The ram looks good

Be sure to check what speed it's running at after the install.

Do you have a link to this psu?

Oh! I see

I thought you were buying parts to build.

I suppose you could call HP and ask but the answer might be whatever is on the shelf at the time of the build.

haha I said I didn't want to buy it myself in the OP Silly I know I could save some money if i did but I dont have the patience nor the time, so i rather buy it ready to use
