[SOLVED] 2x PCIe SSD + GPU - PCIe Lanes X299

How many PCIe lanes does X299 Taichi have? Would 2x PCIe SSDs + a GPU limit performance or take away any PCIe lanes from any of those parts? Notice the Intel 900p SSDs, userbenchmark says the 280GB is faster. Is this correct?

Anything that would be obviously better please let me know. Can AMD ThreadRipper run fast RAM? I think I would be better off with Intel running 3600MHz+. Think I can get 4000MHz?

If I changed to i9-9900K + Z390 Taichi for X8/X4/X4, would X4 limit the PCIe SSD performance? The SSDs and RAM are the focal point of the build to run SQL database. The SSDs are supposed to be the fastest on the market.
