Budget:
$4K-$4.5K

Expectations:
Gaming computer that will last me 5+ years. Just looking for input if there are any glaring issues with this build. I've read in multiple posts that anything above the i5-13600KF is overkill for a gaming computer and that the SSD 980's are worth the price. Would like to upgrade to 4K monitors at some point.

Gaming and streaming shows. Have a separate computer for work.

depending on the number of games (and other media) you like to keep on your drives at 1 time, i'd probably have suggested 1 bigger drive (to preserve your M.2 slots) that way you can add more storage over time if you don't like uninstalling/reinstalling games a lot. 

i just got my new gaming rig: Ryzen 7950X; Asus ROG Strix X670E-E Gaming; TeamGroup 32GB DDR5-6000; Gigabyte RTX 4090 Gaming OC; T-Force 2TB A440 Pro (primary drive); Lian Li 011-D chassis; 1000W EVGA Gold PSU; EK AIO 360 Cooler.  it doesn't struggle at 4K playing tough games like: Cyberpunk 2077 and The Division 2 with all the bling, unlike my last pc.  i do miss the cooling might of my Aventum 3 custom open loop, but the AIO from EK seems to handle everything under a gaming load.

hope you get your rig sooner rather than later and enjoy it immensely!
