Strangely the 970 Evo is cheaper than most other drives for me in the US.

Yes we do. I was talking about the high speed NVMe x4 drives. Most drives are the same as more expensive. Although looking at Adata they are cheaper slightly slower still.

Looking more into it Samsung drives got more expensive. Wonder when that happened... Went from low $80 to almost $100 for a 250GB.

I was talking NVME too. At least here when you look at the 1TB range, the price difference between Adata and Samsung gets sizeable. When I bought, the Sammy was about $130-$140CDN more expensive than the SX8200. It is slightly slower, but not by much, and compared to the savings, it's a big cost savings for about 90-95% of the performance.

Thanks for the great advice and as of last night myself and ChronoCabal put the build together, the only hold up is waiting for the Win 10 updates to do their thing. I'll try to upload some pictures asap
