Option 3 if you could give it one or two more SSDs. I've heard of some heat issues with the i9 chips though, so make sure you're springing for better cooling.

And if you're serious about Octane, you might consider adding multiple GPUs. Octane's performance scales linearly with total GPU compute power, so dual GPU renders 2x as fast as single GPU.

Hey Sam,

Walter is correct, Octane's performance does scale linearly with more GPUs. I would add that Octane only runs on CUDA, so option two is out. If you can swing it, multiple GPUs is the way to go.

[EDIT] Sorry, just noticed that option 2 also has a GTX1080! However, I still stand by the multiple GPU comment... obviously, I need more sleep! :-)
