I know this isn't what you asked, but I would really encourage you to go the self build route. It really isn't hard. There are maybe a couple of "difficult" moments like setting the CPU or applying thermal late for the first time, but these sound much scarier than they really are. And there are great YouTube videos for everything now.
Just my opinion... but if you can afford to keep your workstation separate than your server that's definitely the route to go. The xeons probably have ecc memory as well, not sure how important that is these days but probably is if it's a used as a fileserver.

Idk... 5950x is also kind of overkill if you're not using the machine as a workstation. 5900x is probably more than enough. This is a good price though, I probably would have made the jump myself if I could have snagged it for this price instead of $850.

Anyone have suggestions on a good prebuilt that comes with the 5950X? I have no experience building a computer myself so don't want to go that route. It would be for AI/ML - not gaming.

Debating this or the TR 3960x for a home lab. Currently have a x570m pro4 motherboard with a 3800x with 32GB's ram. This MB will support a 5950x but think I might run out of PCI lines.

I also have Asus Z10PE-D8 WS running dual Intel Xeon E5-2680 v3 and a 128 GB's DDR4.

Between these 2 systems, I have almost 48TB's of disk space.

Should I upgrade the CPU to a 5950x or combine both systems and go with the TR 3960x?

So far, I've got the Xeon's running Esxi. Esxi is running Blue Iris, Windows 10 VM, Server 2019 and CentOS 8 (just to play with it)

The 3800x is running as my plex system and network file shares.

Thoughts?

It has been available on AMD's site [amd.com] for a couple of weeks at MSRP $799. Nice to see it at NewEgg for a double-sawbuck less than full list.

Edit to add: I would like to test gaming from ESXI just for testing. I would also like to use it for pen testing and other cyber security testing.... just a small list of my plans.

I have a 3700x I'm using for my work station/everyday system.

I dont have much to say in regards to your hardware choice, however, since you're running blueiris I would say to check out https://github.com/blakeblackshear/frigate which you can setup with home assistant and MQTT instead of using blueiris. I bought a 40 dollar google coral and set it up with my ipcams and can do person detection/object detection on the fly, pretty spiffy instead of relying on blueiris to do it.

Puget Sound allows you to customize. Costs more than some brands but done right.

I currently run a 5950x w 64gb of ram (had a 2990wx with 128 gb that was struck by lightening) and it runs vmware with an unraid server and a bunch of other stuff. I am waiting for the next threadripper as it will hopefully be the 5990x and such. Might even be worth waiting till the one after that cause the rumor is everything will double in cores so you'll see a 128 core 6990x 64 core 6980x and a 32 core 6970x. That is the rumor at least.. Will have ot have ddr5 as well.

Pcie lanes only matter if you are maxing then. That said I run a 5900x on x570 after 4. Sata it turns my 16x gpu into 8x lane and feeds 8x to the south bridge for the other satas etc. I don't notice any frame drops. Still 399 FPS cap on over watch n 250 ish black ops Cold War 220+ on warzone from 2080ti water cooled. Samsung b die 3733c13. I didn't notice much difference in going from 3950x to 5900x honest Overwatch stays at 399 FPS 90 % the time or more where as before it was 70% the time with dips to 260 now those dips are 300. Warzone no change (less then 10fps) under Optimus water block custom d5 pump etc.
