Video cards are pretty hard to find in stock and not ridiculously overpriced, buying direct from EVGA or NVIDIA was the best option last I checked.

The stock cooler that came with the 8700 will work, but it's known for running hot and making a lot of noise. The H7, (while not strictly necessary,) would run much quieter and possibly allow the CPU to boost higher.

If I do use the Cryorig is the thermal paste that remains after I remove it enough or do I need to add more?

The H7 will also have thermal paste included. I'd recommend cleaning the old stuff off with rubbing alcohol if you do use the H7.

Not installing or having outdated drivers can lead to glitches/instability, or even games failing to launch entirely.

Basically you can go without drivers, but expect issues.

The reason I picked 32gb of ram was pretty much purely aesthetic.

You could do a 4x4 configuration if you want to fill all the slots.

Gaming is my primary concern, but I do also have interest in some video editing//twitch streaming and possibly some 3D applications

You could step up to the 8700K then, as the 8600K doesn't do as well in streaming and similar.

So the M.2 is kind of a waste? I would like to move on from HDD's

Not the M.2, the NVMe. (Which is what Samsung's 960 series are.) You can get a SATA M.2 drive that's double the size for about $50 less.

The i9 is a workstation CPU and while it massively outperforms the i5-8600K in multi-threaded workloads, the i5 keeps pace with it in single and lightly threaded work. (Which is what the vast majority of games will use.) 32gb of RAM is WAY more than you need for gaming, 16gb is plenty. NVMe offers no significant advantage for general/gaming use, SATA will work just as well.

Case suggestion: The H700i is one of the better looking cases (in my opinion) and offers space for either a AIO or custom loop.

My parts list says there could be a compatibility issue with my M.2 Storage.

That's normal. M.2 drives use the bandwidth of a SATA port, and will occupy one port as if a drive is plugged into it.

There have been people (me included) recommending the NVIDIA email notification for a week or two now, so there are likely to be dozens to hundreds of people waiting for them to come in stock and then snapping them up immediately.

Reason why I have all that RAM is because it won’t be just for gaming. It’ll be geared more towards programming and software development eventually.

Fair enough.

And my motherboard has already been bought. Will it be compatible with the 20 series gpus coming up soon?

Video cards are compatible with pretty much everything, Volta will be no different.

Unless you're overclocking, go with a 1600 as it comes with a decent stock cooler. Ryzen scales well with RAM, and you can get a great set for just a little more than the Crucial RAM. PSU isn't the best, the CXM series is a better choice:

You don't have a link, but going by the first list on your profile:

The 8600K supersedes the 7700K.Added a nicer looking and equivalent CPU cooler. 32gb of RAM is ridiculous for a gaming build, 16gb is plenty. Cheaper and good quality SSD. No point in getting 2 1tb drives when 2tb drives exist. 650W is plenty, even 550W would be fine.

Notes on the HAF-X- i have one of these lying around, and I can say that it is MASSIVE. And also a pretty old design. You can probably find a better case for cheaper, and unless you are doing a custom loop or similar a mid-tower case is plenty big.

Second question. The case I have selected doesn't look like it can fit an optical drive but the site doesn't acknowledge if it does or not.

It can. It has six 5.25" bays.

The Cryorig M9i or H7 would be better than the 212 for around the same price. I'm guessing you're thinking of the scythe Mugen 5, which would be overkill for a locked CPU.

SSD's affect the speed/responsiveness of your entire system. They won't increase your FPS in game, but they make the whole computer feel faster. (When your OS is installed on one.)
