I understand your "need" for overclocking, but Ryzen is plenty capable. Then again, so is your i7-980X. I'm personally in a similar boat and I'm waiting for Coffee Lake. By then, Skylake-X will be on the market and we might have some insight on second-gen Ryzen. I personally plan on finally moving on from Westmere with Coffee Lake, which should simply be Skylake/Kaby Lake with a 6-core option available.

As far as gaming resolution, I think 4K gaming is maybe two generations away from being financially reasonable. If you feel like you need to step up your gaming resolution, 1440p is a more reasonable option. It sounds like that's where you're currently leaning. If 4K gaming isn't so damned expensive in two generations, you shouldn't have much of a problem moving your 1440p monitor, if you even want to sell it.

With future prof i mean M.2 have transfer speed sata can never compete with and M.2 SSD also have higher iops.

Ryzen/AMD is not my thing. I planned to try get a GTX 1080 TI now and a UHD/1440P monitor and se how thats run. If that fails i will wait for coofee lake or skylake E/X299.

And yeah my CPU has plenty power for what i use it for, its more if its capable of feeding a single GTX 1080 TI.

M.2 doesn't mean anything. It's an interface. You're confusing interface (SATA, M.2, PCI-e) with protocol (AHCI, NVMe). NVMe offers indistinguishable performance gains over AHCI. If you saw benchmarks from a SATA 850 EVO versus M.2 850 EVO, you wouldn't know which were which.
