Default Run pro tools on my system or build dedicated desktop system?

How is my system for pro tools? Windows 10 Pro 20H2, Intel i7-1185G7, Iris XE integrated graphics, 16.0 GB DDR4 3200, M.2 512GB PCIe NVMe sClass 35. System has good specs except for integrated graphics. Slow down when I enable the video engine and don't think it will run Media Composer.

If I build a dedicated system, I want it to be able to run Pro Tools and Media Composer with good performance for the next 2-3 years.

Thinking i7-11700K or i9-11900 3060 TI or 3070 or 3080.

Too basic, will 1660 Ti handle Media Composer?
i7-11700 processor
GTX 1660 Ti
512 GB SSD

Good system?

i7-11700 processor
RTX 3060 Ti
512 GB SSD

Overkill for PT and MC, don't plan to use Ultimate or Enterprise?
RTX 3070
16GB RAM or 32 GB RAM
512 GB SSD

What's the cpu speed and how many cores? You don't give that.

Not knowing what else you use your existing system for I'd tend to go more towards a dedicated system. I have a separate Mac for doing Photoshop and internet stuff.
