What do you guys think of this build? I threw some stuff together based on ratings and am going to do further research based off this list. But as it stands now, is it solid? I do want both the 1TB SSD's, in case people think that was a mistake.

Why would you overpay for Sata SSD, when you can get faster NVME drives, for less? I am assuming this is a gaming rig? Do you really need the optical drive? You can get a faster GPU, with some changes, keeping cost similar.

Yes, this is a gaming rig

I was leery about the NVMEs. Cheaper and faster? Seems too good to be true, so I was going to stick with something that's been around the block for a while. I'll do more research on them though.

Has AMD CPUS surpassed Intels at this point? I heard Intel was lagging behind.

Crucial P1 or Intel 660p.
Both NVMe, both faster than SATA SSD, at the same or sometimes lower price.
