    I'd start with something like this
    And make certain to flag down @Spartan@HIDevolution here on this site and see if he can swing you some sort of deal.
    The sky is the limit with that lappy...pretty much any cpu, any gpu, more ram than you can stand and if I'm not mistaken up to 4 NVME drives.
    Whats really nice is you can go for the upper end cpu/gpu and then add ram and drives as you're wanting or able to afford.
    It's a beast.
