Silicon Power 512GB NVMe M.2 PCIe Gen3x4 2280 TLC R/W up to 3,400/2,300MB/s SSD (SU512GBP34A80M28AB)
- Super-fast PCIe Gen3x4 interface for read/write speeds of up to 3, 400MB/s/ 2, 300MB/s
- Nvme 1. 3 support. System Requirement: Computer with M.2 slots supporting PCIe interface, and one of the following operating systems:Windows 8.1/ Windows 10
- Slim form factor M. 2 2280 (80mm) for perfect fit in slim and portable mobile applications or desktop PCs
- To support a Silicon Power PCIe SSD, the system must have an M. 2 connector with only an M key. The Silicon Power PCIe SSD does not have a b notch and therefore, the b key on the SSD connector will prevent it from being inserted
- The custom screw should come with the motherboard or PC. Please acquire the screw from your motherboard or PC Manufacturer, if needed

The model linked is the much slower model (P34A60 vs P34A80). Spend the $10 more and get this one instead if you're going to grab a Silicon Power NVME SSD.

Yeah, I think the one posted last week (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07L6DKM8V/) is the better buy as it has dram cache and is only a few dollars more. That said, I did buy it and just got around to installing it last night. It's crazy how much faster it is than my 850 EVO at this point. Short term is just gonna be games drive, but long term (once I upgrade my CPU/motherboard later this year) I'll definitely have to put the OS on there.

Spend $4 more and get this instead.

The Silicon Power A80 512gb NVMe is cheaper and faster than the Intel 660p.
Plus the Intel 660p is QLC and the Silicon Power A80 is TLC.

If you're considering a budget NVMe drive in this price range, I'd recommend spending $3 more on a 512GB P34A80 ($63 on Amazon), which has DRAM—this Lexar drive doesn't.

68 bucks from Amazon for 500gb

Also you can get a cheaper case and ssd. The phanteks p300 is a steal fpr only 50 dollars and it has great airflow and space, glass side panels and has a premium look.
On the ssd you can get a 512 gb m.2 ssd for 70 dollars. Heres the link of the one I bought for my build: https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B07L6DKM8V/ref=cm_cr_othr_mb_bdcrb_top?ie=UTF8&th=1&psc=1

get this nVME instead, has DRAM. Only a few dollars more worth it

Wait! Good build EXCEPT your M.2 is sata, not NVMe, which means it will be much slower than it could be. You should get any NVMe M.2, which will only have one notch in the pins, rather than the two on sata drives. I recently purchased this one: https://www.amazon.com/Silicon-Power-Gen3x4-000MB-SU001TBP34A80M28AB/dp/B07L6DKM8V?th=1&psc=1

Jesus, at least get a nvme m.2 ssd instead of the smallest and cheapest sata ssd you can buy. You can get a silicon power 512 gb m.2 for $65 on amazon or at minimum a 256 gb. https://www.amazon.com/Silicon-Power-512GB-Gen3x4-SU512GBP34A80M28AB/dp/B07L6DKM8V
Don't handicap your system to save a few bucks. 120 gb is barely enough space for windows and nvme is much much faster than sata.

Concur. A SSD, specifically an M.2 NVMe SSD (which your mobo supports) would be light years faster than the HDD. I would keep the HDD for your bulk storage (games, music, photos) but for your boot drive add on a M.2 SSD for $55-70 and your system will speed up considerably. The Corsair MP150 256GB is $55 and the Silicon Power 512GB is around $70.
By using a fast M.2 SSD for your boot drive (and the software you use the most), every calculation will be faster from the beginning. It’ll be a night and day difference.

That’s the brand I went with it’s a cheaper brass but I’ve had no problems at all but for like 80 I’m pretty sure you can get Samsung so you’re call but it’s so worth it but gotta make sure it’s NVMe m.2 and not a m.2 sata but I just built my pc like 2 weeks ago and it’s lit asf

It's good but not typically beneficial for most people.
Actually I look to see what's available and this currently looks like the best deal you'll get https://www.amazon.com/Silicon-Power-512GB-Gen3x4-SU512GBP34A80M28AB/dp/B07L6DKM8V/ref=mp_s_a_1_9?dchild=1&keywords=NVMe+SSD&qid=1586201355&sr=8-9

There are m.2 slots that are NVMe and ones that are SATA. You will need to check and see what the slot on your board is, if it's NVMe then both types will work. If it's SATA then only the m.2 SATA drives will work. I like these. They are competitively priced and, so far, reliable.

would switch out ssd to this https://www.amazon.com/Silicon-Power-512GB-Gen3x4-SU512GBP34A80M28AB/dp/B07L6DKM8V/ref=mp_s_a_1_7?keywords=nvme+500gb&qid=1577807270&sprefix=nvme+500&sr=8-7

Yeah I bought a WD Blue without really looking at the details. It runs great as a SATA SSD, but it I wasn’t looking for another SATA SSD. First time I booted windows it ran basically at the same rate as my PNY SATA SSD. I grabbed a this and I’m returning the WD Blue.
Basically I learned to check the actual description. If it says SATA in its description the speeds will only equal that of your normal SATA SSD (6Gb/sec or 500MB/sec), not the NVMe M2 you are may a want (1000MB/s or greater)

B450 is outdated and has been replaced with B550. May I suggest the GIGABYTE B550M DS3H for $6 more.
B550 adds PCIe 4.0 support for graphics cards and SSDs, as well as 3.0 for everything else. B450 is 3.0 and 2.0 respectively.
The new RTX 30 series cards are PCIe 4.0 and these cards can load data directly off of NVMe SSDs.
SATA SSDs are outdated, and NVMe is 4-10x faster. For $3 more this is 6 times faster (3400 vs 550 megabytes per second): https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07L6DKM8V

They're "click to redeem" coupons, if you have Prime & it doesn't show up for you then idk the solution.
If you want one that doesn't rely on a coupon:
$60 - Silicon Power 512GB NVMe M.2 PCIe Gen3x4 2280 TLC R/W up to 3,400/2,300MB/s SSD (SU512GBP34A80M28AB)

Silicon power a80 is one of many e12 drives that compete with the samsung 970 evo and other high end pcie 3.0x4 tlc drives

Would you choose this one or the Silicon Power one? Debating if I want to cancel my amazon order and grab this 8100 instead.

I'd agree with the practical advice. If you're stuck on that $800 budget and you're willing to buy used you can get much better parts. The cooler is a pointless lateral move for performance.
I'd look into either a 2600 or a 3300x off ebay. 2600 would get you a little budget back, 3300x would cost a little more used but get you better gaming performance.
If you go with a used 2600 and drop the non-necessary third party cooler, you can add roughly $100 to your budget.
I'd also drop the b450 motherboard. It's very loved and well reviewed, but you can get newer for less that's fine. Per example, https://www.newegg.com/asrock-b550-phantom-gaming-4/p/N82E16813157935?Item=N82E16813157935&quicklink=true is currently $99 for the next 3 days. Even after, it's a current gen board which will provide update options in the future.
Those changes would add about $114 to your budget. You can get a 1660 for $275 on the low end.
https://www.amazon.com/Silicon-Power-512GB-Gen3x4-SU512GBP34A80M28AB/dp/B07L6DKM8V/ref=sr_1_6?dchild=1&keywords=512gb+m.2+ssd&qid=1607060170&s=electronics&sr=1-6 I'd go with something like this for a boot SSD. It's a little more, but it's much better.

Are essentially all nvme m.2 drives usable on an ASUS TUF GAMING X570-plus (wifi). I bought one that I don’t see on my mobos QVL (Silicone Power), but I assumed it fit since the key type matched up. This was pulled directly from my specs page from ASUS, “1 x M.2 Socket 3, with M Key, Type 2242/2260/2280/22110(PCIE 4.0 x4 and SATA modes) storage devices support”. I believe nvme drives are also called PCIE. Which I see there.
Are there any other things to look out for?

After talking to many of you(on other subreddits too) I have decided that this set up:
tell me if there's anything wrong and how good my pc would be in general, and if everything is in order this is what I will buy :)
-i5 processor (not sure which as its a hand me down.) I do know it has a CPU cooler already.
\^should I go for better? or is it good as it is? I could get this, but is it worth it or could I get away with using the one above rn?
total price: 484.92 leftover: 115.08
Some of the leftover money I want to save for games.
Games I want to run:
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition (heavily modded)
Ark Survival Evolved
Minecraft (heavily modded)

I'm not much of an expert on standard SATA III's but I think that this is a pretty good one (someone correct me if I'm wrong!)
SK Hynix gold S31 500 GB ($56.99)
Also -- if his mobo has a spare PCIe lane you can get a PCIe to m.2 card to plug in, and there's a great deal on a few NVME's right now!
Converter (cheapest I found was $7 but I'm not sure of the quality)
Silicon Power 512GB NVMe ($59.99)
