This is an idea of everything minus the GPU.
I would say you should look at the reviews of Zen 3 when it is released in a couple weeks. There is a good chance it might be overall faster.

Why 2 ssds? Would it be ok to just get the 4tb sabrent or is there a reason for 2 different?

It is better to have the OS and other utility/office type programs on 1 SSD and then games on another.

This is what I would do with a Corsair focused build:

Edited the build for clarity of cooling requirments. Seems corsair doesnt really make a case with top mounted 360mm RAD support, shame. Still this is a really nice aesthetic that does not increase the price too much. Also the 10900kf / 10900k prices fluctuate a lot so I edited the price to its MSRP and I would not get one for more than that.

A 240MM AIO is too small for the 10900K.
 
"The one issue that Intel won’t escape from is that all this extra power requires extra money to be put into cooling the chip. While the Core i9 processor is around the same price as the Ryzen 9 3900X, the AMD processor comes with a 125 W cooler which will do the job – Intel customers will have to go forth and source expensive cooling in order to keep this cool. Speaking with a colleague, he had issues cooling his 10900K test chip with a Corsair H115i, indicating that users should look to spending $150+ on a cooling setup. That’s going to be a critical balancing element here when it comes to recommendations. "

When professional reviewers are having problems cooling the CPU with a 280mm AIO, I will go with their feelings on what to use.
