with NVME drives nearly matching AHCI drives in price there's not much reason to opt for a SATA drive unless you're pinching pennies. since OP was already looking at getting a 960 Evo then I assume that's not the case.

the HP EX950 drives are great drives for the prices they're going for. I got my 2TB EX950 for less ($200) than the price I paid for my slower ($220) 1TB Mushkin Pilot a year ago.

For $30 you could get a 5 pack of Arctic P12 PWM fans that will definitely perform better than Corsair AF120 at $16 each.

I dont mind NVME when they are getting as cheap as they they are it was another story a few years ago
I was going to buy a 2 TB SSD and after getting some good advice here on OCN i ended up with a Corsair Force MP510 which is almost the same price as an 860 Evo but its an M.2 NVME SSD

Its not faster or better in any way compared to the 860 Evo 1 TB i had before but it freed up a SATA port on my motherboard which is nice since i am going to need that for a 6th HDD at some point
Samsung M.2 NVME SSD´s are way overpriced compared to other NVME options out there such as drives using the Toshiba E12 controller

Might try to find a regular 2080, I'd take the 2070s over 2080s. Or wait for Navi 20, which will probably be better than all except 2080Ti/Titian.



Also: Consider dropping cpu down to 3600 to save money and get faster rated RAM since you are high res gaming. Your GPU should be the best you can squeeze in.

The navi 20 could be a nice take over the Nvidia, I have to admit that price to performance is awful, but for the kind of performance I am after is the only option right now. If it doesn't take very long for AMD to launch Navi 20 I will glady replace the 2080 super with a smile on my face.
Regardless cooling thanks AlphaC for the sugestion I will try to find those in my country.
About the nvme SSD I will go with your suggestions guys, the samsung lineup is overpriced.

Again thank you for all the support and suggestions.

I'm kinda in the same boat as you regarding the GPU. Navi 20 is too far & the 2080S is terribly priced. I'm personally leaning towards 2070S/ AIB 5700XT.

I feel like turning down AA & shadow a notch would yield pretty good FPS @ higher res., They'll perform very close to 2080S for a significantly lesser cost.
