I'm considering buying this machine for using Houdini more seriously, does anyone see any issues I might have missed? I'm a bit confused about motherboard compatibility, I also have a usb-c monitor which I think will work with the GPU and motherboard but I'm a bit confused

Does it look powerful enough as well? I'm planning to use redshift, I wan to do some velum and sim work but nothing too intense, someone said I should get 128gb memory but that's a bit out of my price range right now

Thanks in advance!
