I'm about to start putting together my new system, a gaming PC to go under my TV in a horizontal orientation. Here are the components I selected and my reasoning behind them, any feedback would be much appreciated:

Why I picked what I picked:

CPU Cooler: quieter and better performance than stock, doesn't put restrictions on ram height and also allows for one of the case fans to be mounted above the CPU
MB: went with an X570 since I'm hoping to keep this board for maybe two GPU upgrades, at which time the PCIe 4.0 bandwidth might be used (I asked and Silverstone told me they intend to release a PCIe 4.0 riser at some point)
RAM: the Trident Z Neo seem to be recommended as a pretty good kit, went with 32gb because RAM is pretty cheap right now and I'm hoping to not have to upgrade it for a few years by buying more
Storage: the XPG X8200 Pro seems to be a good sweet spot between affordability and performance, went with the big one because SSDs are also relatively cheap and games are enormous already
Case: I want something horizontal that allows for powerful components, the RVZ01-E offers better thermals for this than the Node 202 from what I've seen
PSU: went with the 750 since Nvidia recommends 650+ watt for a 2080ti and I've seen people post about having issues on a SF600
Case fans: slim Noctua fans to replace the standard fans (the standard fans are not PWM)
Feet: since I plan on using the case horizontally, I'll be getting 3rd party feet with higher clearance (25mm) so the GPU will have an easier time drawing air

I budgeted more than I need to for some parts (MB, RAM, PSU) in the hope of not needing to upgrade them in the next 5+years, as those would require major disassembly of the entire system (GPU can be more easily upgraded, which I intend to do at some point). As I said in the opening, any feedback would be much appreciated!
