new pc build

so as the title says i think this will be the final version of my build im going to be buying this weekend. before finalizing everything does anyone see any incompatibility issues or ways to to improve this? The main used will be for gaming and some CAD/CAM software shortly down the road. the nvme drive will be my boot drive and for my main application and the ssd's will be in raid 0 and my storage drive.

Technically it'd all work, but what's the point of the two SSDs?

That's also a lot of unnecessary fans.

The G3 is a bit louder than the RM850x, which is available for $1 more. LAMBDA B vs LAMBDA A++. Average noise of 33,9 dBA Vs 20 dBA. 

Why 2 SSDs instead of a single larger one?

Other than that, everything seems to be high end to the point where there's little to gain by increasing the cost, and a little money to gain (assuming you won't change the dual GPU setup).

That psu is kinda of cutting it close. If you want to overclock it, you wont have the power to.

I wouldn't. A single large SSD is usually better. There quite a few more points of failure with RAID0, and it's not going to make your games load any faster. Also, NCIX starts their sales the day before at 4:30 PST, and their stuff can sell out pretty fast.

LAMBDA is the noise certification by the guys at Cybenetics.

Honestly NewEgg Canada isn't that great for Black Friday. NCIX is the way to go.

Also, go with a 1,000w PSU.

Honestly, not really, especially if you get a decent overclock on the CPU. You have to remember that the 1080Ti isn't a lower powered card like the 1080, it uses quite a bit more.

hmm ok if you had to take a guess percentage wise what do you think i will save at new egg in total exp: 10% off 1000$ so 900 in the end and what % off ncix?

When it comes to Black Friday shopping, if you're going to do it right you don't pick parts and then hope they go on sale.

When Black Friday comes, you see what's on sale, and pick from that.

I've built PCs for people the past 3 Black Fridays. I'd say they saved an average of $800, and upwards of $1,000 for my one buddies build last year.

It wasn't anything too crazy, I think he spent $2,500? Saved $250 on an HDD, $120 off the motherboard, $180 off the PSU, like $150 off the GPU, etc etc.

You can check your PSU requirements here. I put in a 1.35v and 4.9ghz on the CPU, and light OCs on the GPUs. Came out to 829w. Personally I'd want more headroom than a very, very tight 20w.
