For a light server (a couple users) it's overkill, but would give you plenty of headroom.
A Ryzen 7 would be plenty, and much cheaper.

Thanks for your reply. What about hypothetically if I ran a light webserver, remote desktop app, Plex server, and transcoder? Would ryzen 2700 be enough ? Thanks

That depends on if you are transcoding video, the resolution, and the number of transcoding streams it will be serving.

It's probably better to look at this link instead of me telling you something incorrect.

The PassMark comparison for the two processors.

I imagine the Ryzen 7 will work fine for you. If you want to run several VM's, need more RAM support, or need more PCIe lanes then I think the additional cost of the threadripper would be warranted. The Ryzen 7 motherboards are probably cheaper as well.

Great deal. The motherboard and memory will still be expensive for this setup but at least you are set for the next batch of Threadrippers if you want to swap out the chip later.

This would be a power hog for plex only. I would rather recommend you just buy the x10 router which is around $500 (If price isn't an issue for you).

This processor is for the workhorses. Unless you are editing videos or doing 3D graphics, you will be better off with other much cheaper processors.

Can u just swap the threadrippers of different generations for the mobo? I think they will change the pins layout enough where you are forced to buy everything again.

At $400 each, I'd like to run a dual CPU setup. Sold a dual XEON rig (both CPUs & Supermicro motherboard) a few months ago to someone running sneaker bots. It had 32GB ECC in a RAID 0 SSD configuration. Needless to say, it was blazing fast. Not sure, however, if you will ever snag a 1950X for $400 brand new from a trusted vendor. It is a niche product, but I suspect demand might outstrip supply at $500. Newegg might sell for $500 circa BF? Which motherboard would you pair with it?

At $60, your taxes are high (GA is $36). This purchase is relative to each individual situation. I bundled with an open box MSI X399 Gaming Pro Carbon AC motherboard. With the extra $30 bundle savings and $40 motherboard rebate, I will get the motherboard for $150. So MC is my better option. And internet purchases are not always safe. I just bought something directly from EVGA. I live in a nice neighborhood, however someone was brazen enough to steal the package right off the front porch within an hour of delivery. EVGA shows no desire to help. So buying direct in a B&M eliminates this potential headache.

Open box motherboard, ok. For me nyc tax is crazy high so yeah def its in my favor to buy from eBay. Sorry to hear your package got lost but I hope you used a credit card and not a money order or mailed cash for your evga purchase as most credit card do have claims to get your money back if the seller refuses to send replacement or rectify the situation. I have had a friend get robbed coming out of a B&M store at knife point so please dont say the theres no risk buying in store.

If not too far, the Patterson, NJ Micro Center charges 3% tax. Thanks for the advise (intended to do the same). Package was stolen. I used a CC. It was a mouse, no big deal; however was shocked with EVGA's response. Was your friend in a bad area? There is risk with everything. I prefer to shop online. But my best computer shopping experiences have been inside a Micro Center.
