Would you suggest the Western Digital Blue 500GB? It is a m.2 and is actually cheaper. Also, if this means that then 2 sata 6gbs ports are disabled, it is still worth it?

The WD blue is fine. Be sure the name specifies that it is an NVME drive. No worries about the disabled sata ports. You still have ports 1 through 4 that will work and you'll probably never use more than 1 or 2 of them unless you have really extraordinary storage needs. The performance of the m.2 NVME drives is great. They're very fast and attach directly to the motherboard so there's no cables. You can add more storage any time you want on the other ports down the road and it's very easy to do.

It's a pretty nice build, and you've got some great advice above.

I would personally cheap out a little bit more on the PC case and put that money toward an RTX2060. The 1660S is a nice mid range GPU, but an RTX2060 would last you longer through the years and it will handle today's stuff much better.

Also, remember that in about 2 months time, there will be some new stuff coming out, AMD CPUs and Nvidia GPUs.

good luck
