I can't recommend getting a 2970WX as a active workstation CPU. I'd also recommend buying an Nvidia GPU for most CG workloads.

Here's a build that will probably fit your requirements better:

CPU: Ryzen 9 5950x
CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D15
Motherboard: MSI x570 Tomahawk
GPU: EVGA FTW3 Ultra RTX 3080 or Asus TUF 3080
RAM: G.Skill Trident Z Neo or G.Skill Ripjaws V, 4x16GB, 3600cl16
SSD: Sabrent Rocket 4.0 2TB M.2 NVMe
PSU: 850W Gold, Seasonic Prime GX-850 or bequiet Dark Power Pro 11
Case: Phanteks p600s
