Need some review/confirmation about my build

Hello guys, Below is the build I'm interested in. There were some compatibility notes about this build.

Note:The motherboard M.2 slot #1 shares bandwidth with a SATA 6.0 Gb/s port. When the M.2 slot is populated, one SATA 6.0 Gb/s port is disabled. Note:The motherboard M.2 slot #2 shares bandwidth with SATA 6.0 Gb/s ports. When the M.2 slot is populated, two SATA 6.0 Gb/s ports are disabled. Note:Some physical dimension restrictions cannot (yet) be automatically checked, such as cpu cooler / RAM clearance with modules using tall heat spreaders.

Question 1. Should I be okay with the notes below? Since the motherboard has 6 x SATA 6.0 Gb/s ports, even with two M.2 slots being taken, I will still have four sata ports available?

  1. Any other recommendations about the build if you have any? (This pc will be made to run games, softwares like maya unity zbrush etc.)

Thanks in advance!

That s a normal M2 thing. Yes, you should have 4 more.

Cheaper memory (unless you need the lower CAS):

Why 2 SSD drives?

I went with 2 ssds because I'm planning to install a lot of programs, and it looked like going for Samsung - 970 Evo 2 TB M.2-2280 Solid State Drive was a bit more expensive. $499 vs current build $435 = 280+155

Any reason for not going with AMD? Identical performance for much less.

Also, the ADATA XPG SX8200 Pro 1 TB model is known to match and sometimes beat the 970 evo in read/writes and be $100 cheaper.

I guess it was because I always went Intel and it was something I was comfortable with. Thanks for the great feedback :)
