That is a kick-ass gaming system that will kill at 1440p. Not a lot of waste on overkill or unnecessary parts that just make it harder to use and maintain. I think you will enjoy this rig so much, you may want her to have a name!

Just regarding storage, with Windows it's good practice to leave the C: drive just for the operating system and software, and put everything else on a different drive. Unless you really need 2x2TB in M.2 storage, I would suggest reducing the first storage set size to 512GB which is more than enough for the OS and software. Everything else, such as your Steam library, Dropbox and so on should all be installed on the second drive.

My nonstandard use of drives is that I partition the C: to about 300GB and the rest to a D: drive. The second card, the EVO, will be used as an in-case image backup that runs back a few weeks. There are also external backups that also are run periodically.
