From what Ive seen, the Supers still come up short of the TI versions, but at a fraction of the price, so it depends on if you're looking for the highest performance or the best bang for your buck, and how much youre willing to sacrifice for each.  As far as a power supply, with only a single GPU, Im not sure if upgrading to the 1200 is really needed.

One upgrade that I would make, however, is changing your SSD to a M.2 (500GB Samsung 970 EVO) (NVM Express). if you compare the stats, you'll see the 970 Evo is about 6 times as fast, and you'd be surprised how fast 250gb fills up with installation and cache files, even if you install the main programs on the Sata drive. Thats why I wouldnt go with anything under 500, and the Velox Im looking at will be getting 1TB.

At 1440p, there is no need at all to spend for a 2080 Ti. The 2080 SUPER will be all you want and then some.

As for the power supply, they don't give you much choice. You don't need all that overhead, but the DS branded 1000W only carries the one year parts warranty. Corsair warrants theirs for 10 years!

Here is my two cents on the proposed build anksark...lol.

As proposed, this is a very strong Aventum build, using all top end components. Budget is not a problem here.
I like most of your choices...CPU...mobo...RAM...PSU all top shelf. Cooling will of course be legendary...lol.

NVidia says they are keeping the RTX 2080 Ti at the very top of the consumer GPU line...positioned above the 2080 Super in performance.   Most of your other component selections suggest you want top of the line for this build, but the RTX 2080 Super is supposed to be closer than the RTX 2080 was to the RTX 2080 Ti in performance.   On water you should get near top end performance from the Super.   Obviously the RTX 2080 Ti would be stronger yet in gaming...and you wouldn't have to wait for the new Supers to arrive...lol...


Your question about the PSU...
The excellent Corsair AX1200i Digital modular 1200w PSU is a Platinum efficiency unit and a personal favorite of mine that I run in my own DS 2012 rig.   Yes you could get by with the cheaper DS 1000w modular Gold PSU, but I would favor the better efficiency longer warranty Corsair unit as well worth the extra cost.   

Comments/suggestions:

Drive 1 ..... Agree that you should switch to at least a 500 GB M.2 NVME SSD for Drive 1.   Your motherboard has two M.2 NVME SSD ports that utilize the faster PCIE X4 bus.   M.2 NVME SSD's are 5 times faster than normal SATA III M.2 SSD's.

Definitely Overclock the excellent I9-9900X to a Stage 2 OC.   Intel designed the X & K series CPU's to be Overclocked, so go Stage 2 and get all the performance it has to give you.    You are in the very best water cooled DS Aventum X case on the planet...lol... with custom waterblocks and 3 big rads on board...a whopping 14 case fans...so make the most of your gear and go Stage 2 on the CPU!

About hard line tubing.   When we hear of leaks here on the forum, it's usually hard line tubing involved.   DS packs Aventum's very carefully in a huge wooden crate, but the usual shipping bumps and knocks can unseat any hardware... and frequently does.    We usually recommend you use soft tubing if you are having the rig shipped to you.   Hard line tubing is not flexible at all, so it often doesn't handle shipping movement well.   One added benefit of soft tubing is that, as it is very flexible, it is far easier to work around when doing maintenance, cleaning or working on upgrades to your system.   Consider your choice carefully.   Clear tubing/clear fluid is definitely the best choice as you can easily monitor how clean your fluid is.   Always hard to resist using color, but clear is smart.
BTW...With soft tubing, you can ask DS to install a drain port for easy fluid change outs later...but not with hard line.

Excellent Aventum X build....

I would not do that.    PSU ‘s are rated for max wattage, but the unit you select will only use the power your rig requires.     Efficiency rates the units ability to minimize power waste or loss.     Platinum efficiency of the Corsair 1200w is better than gold efficiency of the DS unit.    From the units you get to choose from, the higher efficiency digitally controlled Corsair 1200w PSU with the 10 yr warranty would clearly be the higher quality choice.    You’ll never need another PSU.

By not offering less than the 1000W PSU, I'm pretty sure DS is telling you less wattage than that is not advisable for the Aventum.

Even low voltage fans can have a serious draw when you put 14 in a case as well as a cooling pump. With what high end CPUs, GPUs, and RAM chew up under load, 850 it on the low end of what is required... when you add in the cooling draw, you definitely want to move up to the 1000 for the added head room. If you plan on adding an additional graphics card down the road, moving up to the 1200 isnt unreasonable...
