That looks like a lovely build. However, I would recommend upgrading to the Samsung 980 PRO for your main SSD. It only costs $77 more, and it's about 3 times faster than the one you have selected. :)

When your in the storage configurator, click on the "More Info" button to see the read/write speed for each SSD.

Same as above!   

If you don't have a lot of productivity type uses, the CPU is way over-powered for gaming. Believe it or don't, the 13600KF they offer is all the proc you'll need for the next 5 or 6+ years. Just look here:

https://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Intel-Core-i9-13900K-vs-Intel-Core-i5-13600KF/4129vsm1950757

That's primarily a gaming comparison. You really want to pay $480 for 6%? If you have some heavy lifting, then be my guest, but it needs to be heavy.

The OS Boost is widely considered a waste these days. Truth is, it's a throwback the the early days when Win might hog RAM and slow your system. That doesn't happen even with 16 GB of RAM, and you have 32.

Hope it helps.

do you think the 1000 watt is enough for the 4090?
