But if we work down from your build-

  • 16gb ram instead of 64: $225 less
  • 650w psu instead of 1000w: $50 less
  • normal case instead of rack mount: $50 less?
  • dual tower cooler from a cheaper brand: $40 less

Now your build is suddenly around 1.3k rather than 1.7k. also I'm pretty sure you can get a 7950x for close to 7900x's launch price nowadays.
