Mac Pro Xeon build

I've wanted to build a "proper" desktop for a while. This is just for a hobby, so the configuration does not make much sense (I mean the expense vs performance on Intel).


My previous build is here, it's completely passive build and there is nothing that doesn't work. I really don't need more performance, maybe 5700 XT for casual gaming would be nice but that's not possible if I wan't to keep it passive.


I've been waiting for Dune Pro case, but don't know if it will happen considering the current situation.


Anyway, I would like to build this with similar hardware than the Mac Pro with Xeon W-3223 and use the MacPro7,1 SMBIOS. My figuring was that I would like to get as much as possible working OOTB, like with my previous build i7 7700K and Radeon 560 for Imac 18,3. Below are the components I was thinking but I'm not sure. Any suggestions would be appreciated.


-PSU: 1x Seasonic PRIME Fanless TX-700 for Asus or 2x PX-500 for Aorus

-GPU: 2x Sapphire Radeon RX 5700 XT Pulse

-MOBO: Gigabyte C621 Aorus Extreme or Asus pro ws c621-64l sage/10g

-CPU: Intel Xeon W-3223 or Xeon W-3235
