I would recommend this instead of that WD drive.

Check this out Sabrent Rocket Q 2TB NVMe PCIe M.2 2280 SSD https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0829DZH2W/ref=cm_sw_r_sms_awdo_t1_-tk2EbJ43F4CZ
It's much faster than the stock intel 660p......

My advice is go ryzen, with the money you save instead of buying a mechanical hard drive and 500gb nvme take this: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0829DZH2W/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_awdb_t1_sxUHEbMB0AR9W A mechanical drive for gaming is no more, too slow.

Same situation here, thinking about getting one of these: https://www.amazon.com/Sabrent-Rocket-Internal-Performance-SB-RKTQ-2TB/dp/B0829DZH2W/ref=sr_1_13?dchild=1&keywords=2tb+ssd&qid=1596478328&sr=8-13

Unless you have the new pci-e 4.0 in your desktop then get this one

I'd recommend a sata m.2 ssd since your use case is unlikely to benefit from NVME speeds. You could take a look at the Crucial MX500 and Western Digital Blue SN550. How much storage do you need? Given your budget, you can get a 2TB one easily.
If you want NVME options that fit your budget then I'd add the SN750 and Sabrent Rocket to that list.
Also I should have asked this first, does your motherboard have M.2 slots? If not then the Crucial MX500 and WD Blue have 2.5" formfactors.

I would go for something like Sabrent Rocket Q even though this is an QLC drive. You can get 2TB drives for quite a good price.
Normally you will not see any difference to TLC or MLC drives but they are simply so much cheaper.

EDIT: Added links to all the items I got from Amazon
I have the same laptop as you and just updated it yesterday
Here are the updates
A Sabrent Rocket Q 2TB NVMe for $249,
A ADATA 1TB 2.5" SSD for $99,
And Timetec Hynix Original 32GB KIT 2933MHZ Ram for $124.99
I had a $100 Amazon gift card from my birthday and $50 in Amazon rewards so I got the whole thing for $355.
It's like a whole new laptop.

Your current CPU will bottleneck even your storage because its 1st gen, limited to 2 channels of RAM and just 24 lanes of PCie3. Most Video editing builds START at 40 lanes. That requires a CPU that can address 40 lanes... Typically the new Ryzen third gen, Socket AM4 or TR4 and Intel LGA2066 or higher are the sweet spots for cost saving builds.
HOWEVER... your current motherboard supports ONE PCIe3 x16, ONE PCIe 3 x4 and an M.2 PCIe 3 x4.
- Your OS goes on a SATA ssd/hdd. The OS and Apps don't need speed.
- Get an M.2 PCIe SSD for CACHE/MEDIA/PREVIEW files
- Plug this BAD BOY into your your remaining PCIe x4 slot (somewhere next to your GPU slot) Get another BADDER BOY for your footage!
That is literally the BEST thing you can do RIGHT NOW for peak performance.

This ssd. I chose it from the US Amazon supposing that you're from us. https://www.amazon.com/Patriot-PBU960GS25SSDR-Memory-Burst-Internal/dp/B07GYRRQSN anyway the maximum memory available is 960gb so you should buy two of them and actually that's not a that bad choice since it will allow you to fill all the ssd mounting on the case. That's satisfying to me but it could looks bad to you so I suggest this if you only want a single 2tb ssd https://www.amazon.com/Crucial-BX500-NAND-2-5-Inch-Internal/dp/B07YD5F561 that's not the best ssd though but if that's only for gaming you'll never notice a difference. However at those capacities the price difference is much more little between ssd and m2 so for 40$ more you could buy this https://www.amazon.com/Sabrent-Rocket-Internal-Performance-SB-RKTQ-2TB/dp/B0829DZH2W not the best m2 but it's an m2 and that means that this will be faster than any ssd.

How big are you looking?

FAST! Not the fastest cus raid mirror

At 185 dollars, the tuf wifi has 300 dollar board vrms and wifi+bluetooh 5
Expensive cooling for All core overclock on ryzen for productivity is silly. Also ram wont help at all on multithread workloads as it just serves to make cores communicate faster and fetch data faster, aka gaming.
I strongly suggest the 3900x or even 3950x with a noctua dh 15 or something, they ll shave off times like nothing else.
You can do 1440p 144 hz on a 1070 but even a 2080 ti cant cope with it at times. Just avoid ultra settings. At 620 dollars it has decent value.
The 27gl83a is not gsync. Both the dell and lg are gsync compatible and apart from ULMB which you cant use with gsync anyway, they are the same as "true" gsync monitors.
Get this ssd instead https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0829DZH2W? (please note im not using a referral link mods)
Then 750w may be a good idea. Get this top of the line psu which is on sale https://pcpartpicker.com/product/xTMwrH/evga-supernova-g1-750w-80-gold-certified-fully-modular-atx-power-supply-120-gp-0750-x1
This case is significantly cheaper and im quite sure it has better thermals https://pcpartpicker.com/product/FP3mP6/phanteks-eclipse-p400a-digital-atx-mid-tower-case-ph-ec400atg_dwt

There is a lot of SSDs between those two, its like the basic model and the top end one..
If you have budget, go for the Samsung, but for that price you can buy a medium range 2TB one, unless you are doing some very intensive disk workload.
Either the Sabrent Rocket 2TB, or the Crucial P1 2TB are cheaper than the Samsung and will perform the same:

I'm not knowledgeable, but got help from a friend who works at one of the larger defi companies - here's our crew's setup running DappNode:
For what its worth! If we went overboard it was on the SSD.

I have a 2015 i recently upgraded to 2TB using this:
and this drive:
so if you get a 15 from 2015 with 16GB of RAM, you can probably upgrade the SSD on your own and save a bunch of money. I need the space to keep my DJ collection on disk, I prefer not to use external drives. The newer macbooks, to my knowledge, there is no way to do that upgrade yourself. I can't afford apple's 2TB tax numbers.

I have a Max-17. I like it, and it's powerful. Not sure you really have a bad choice here - that Alienware has a stronger GPU by quite a bit, and I'm not sure why you think thermals are better on the Max-17, my guess is it'd be the other way around (though the Alienware also has to deal with more heat from the more powerful GPU).
Overall the Alienware is a bigger, heavier laptop with more power. Would you rather have something lighter and more portable, or are you ok with giving that up to get more power? Seems that's the main criteria here.
Also, I personally wouldn't spring for the RAM/storage upgrade options through the vendors. I think you can upgrade on your own and get higher quality components for cheaper. I can tell you from what I have Eluktronics isn't exactly putting industry-best RAM and SSD into their laptop. I went with the 16gb RAM/500mb SSD option and have plans to upgrade both of those on my own. Here's a couple of examples:
So yeah, that is a little more expensive than the $300 extra through Eluktronics, but it's better stuff for about $380, and you get 500mb more storage. If you went with the 1TB option bringing you to 1.5TB total, it'd be more like $250 for those two, and they're faster components than what Eluktronics puts in. If you go with the bring your own RAM/SSD option, the downside is it won't come with an OS pre-installed. Just some things to think about.

This guide here might be helpful.
Specifically you should look at the flow chart.
Honestly any of these are fine.
