Not much, besides size one M.2 socket less on the M-ATX "ELITE" and on the ATX "PRO" two less usb connectors on the back i/o. Can't be sure, but VRM looks similar on the pictures, then again if they used the same components for the two is something i don't know and of little importance when using a 11400(f).
Oh the ATX "Pro" has onboard wifi, but that is imo not a reason to pick a certain motherboard

Looks good. The only changes I'd make is the cpu cooler and RAM. That cooler works fine with the 10th gen 10400F but the 11 gen 11400F runs hotter.

Something such as this.

As far as memory speed goes ... 3200mhz is the sweet spot for Intel 10/11 gen cpu's. Unlike Ryzen cpu's, you gain little to nothing with 3600mhz.

Ahh I c, tyvm! I've swapped both. A Question, is it worth spending double the price for up to 7,000 MB/s instead of 3470MB/s?
WD_BLACK SN850 2TB NVMe Gaming SSD with Heatsink up to 7000 MB/s | gen 4 | £429.98

WD_BLACK SN750 2TB High-Performance NVMe with Heatsink up to 3470 MB/s | gen 3 | £219.99
You'd never notice the difference .. that and the gen 4's tend to run hotter and when those SSD's get hot they slow down hence the reason you'll rarely see a gen 4 SSD recommended on here.

Since the 2TB M.2 is for storage of games primarely would i save something on it ,

a review here at Tom's.


If wanting to upgrade inn the future to a more powerfull gpu like a RTX 1080 (TI) might the psu you chose be fine with the lower power cpu, but myself would want to have a little more just in case.
Some options,
the 750watts are cheaper as well which saved money might help with gpu prices, same goes for that cheaper M.2 drive.

But it's up to you, parts look good to me as well in your list.
