Freelance Editor Looking for Appropriate Build

Hey all, So I'm having a really tough time narrowing down and selecting what I want since the MB is kind of spefic. I wanna go with an intel based CPU BUT I am open to having an AMD Ryzen 1700x after looking at benchmarks. My only issue with going with and AMD Chip is that it doesnt support thunderbolt 3 which I really want. Nor do the motherboards support past 64gbs of RAM (Yes, I know the threadripper does but im not sure I wanna spend that much). I'm just in a tight spot cause I know AMD has the best stuff out right now for the price but I'm not sure getting it is ideal. The main use for this build would be to edit (mostly in adobe premiere along with the full adobe suite). Most of my work is in Premiere and after effects. I already bought a used EVGA 970 for $150 and I have a NZXT S340 case. I already returned an ASUS X99-E LGA2011-v3 motherboard due to it having really poor reviews (was gonna pair it with a 6850k CPU). The main 3 CPU's I've been looking at are the 6850k, 7800x, and the Ryzen 7 1700x. I'm sort of thinking about the threadripper 1900x but again I dont like that I cant use thunderbolt 3 at all. I'll post my list below if someone could please edit and add to it and help me understand where I can get the best bang for my buck and performance for the kind of work I do.

Budget: Dont wanna go past 2000

Location: United States

Use: Video Editing with some light gaming/Streaming

Peripherals required: None

Operating System required: No

Personally if majority is video editing then I would recommend Quad channel Memory support, Native T-bolt, High PCI-e lanes and no HDD if moving 4k or better footage around. Granted I know I am on your upper budget end, but You did give a max ;)
