Time Machine by default will restore everything, in which case you'll end up in the same situation. It's OK to back up via Time Machine provided you restore in a highly selective fashion, such as only FCPX libraries, media files, documents, etc.

Another problem with a Time Machine backup is it's not verified. It's easily possible to back up to a hard drive, erase the machine, then when attempting a Time Machine restore, find the backup hard drive is defective or has file system damage.

You can run Disk Utility First Aid on the Time Machine drive after the backup, which at least checks the file system (but not the disk surface). Ideally you want two different types of backups, such as Time Machine and Carbon Copy Cloner. The Carbon Copy backup is verified.

I just returned my 2019 MacPro due to constant issues and many related to FCPX, I just got a 2020 iMac 5k speced up and so far runs much better, as fast and 7k cheaper.

unfortunately, apple lost the plot
