    I don't care if it comes in a Mac box or not.

    AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT. and we're on to a winner.

    **** Apple could compete in the PC Gaming market as well as Pro uses.

    Personally I do a lot of video editing and music production, I don't need 7 PCIe slots, 3 would do me fine

    Plus gaming:

    By and large I agree. Too bad I enjoy programming with Xcode too much and a Mac is a requirement for iOS/iPadOS development anyway (which I do on occasion, and I really like it).

    Plus, I struggle to stomach Windows. Just not my thing.

    Here you go. All you need is to build your new Mac pro

    Yeh, I got some (2) Hacs using i7/8700Ks, these are pretty nice. That said I fear Apple is going to lock out the Hackintosh community in the not too distant future. Recall the T2, separate system partitions, etc.
    I'd rather not have to jump those Hac hoops and get a decent Mac tower without breaking the bank

    They won't be able to until all of their product are T2 or T3 or what ever, plus they still have to support the older products that don't have it, so we have many years left

    you don't need thunderbolt 3 if you have PCIE4 or PCIE3. Even PCIE2x16 is superior to Thunderbolt 3

    I'm seriously considering to buy this. I wanna read some reviews vs i9 9900k and then upgrade from my 6-year-old desktop setup of 4770k. Multi-core performance is no brainer but single-core, gaming performances are where my interest lies.
