Xenon based workstation

Building a workstation in the US to run FEA on different models. I have never built a computer like this and wanted to get some feedback on the build. This computer doesn’t need a very large graphics card because I don’t do much rendering its main use will be simulating force analysis and pressure fields.

Xenon seems to be the best option for this type of application and i would assume a atx form factor. looking for at least 64gb of ram for this computer.

budget: $3000-$4000

thank you
