Does the spec require an operating system too?

If you are targeting a higher resolution display (eg. 1440p/etc) for gaming, I would look to revise the parts list with lesser spend on CPU (eg. Ryzen 2600X/i5-9400F) and more on a beefier graphics card (eg. RTX 2070/2080). The RTX 2070 is definitely a possibility within the 2000 dollar mark, whereas the RTX 2080 may push the budget a little higher.

No i do not need an OS. And i am targeting 1080p 144htz gaming

Nice! I would stick with the faster single threaded i5 CPU for 1080p higher refresh rate gaming.

A 660P isn't a good M.2 Drive due to it getting much slower with more things saved to it, it's only a good boot drive and that's still debatable

I am familiar with the Linus and pro-c review and the rampant ambiguity that ensued. Those synthetic benchmark tests are based on volatile data-write conditions which are more relevant for workstation class payloads. Not just any heavy-lift workloads but specifically read/write susceptible tasks which are a better comparable for sequentially superior NVME drives.

The 660p is intels consumer-level supplement and is not targeted at huge data-write propositions or relentless large data transfer rates. At the consumer level, SLC exhaustion is almost non-existent and where it may occur in large installations, the intermittent drop in performance (a couple of seconds in lets say 20-30GB packages) will go completely unnoticed and not even worth a mention. The QLC+SLC buffer share/switch has next to zero impact in real-world basic user configurations (office, gaming, general productivity, etc etc). Hence, I wouldn't pay much attention to some of these stress-test susceptibilities as these are lesser concerning (actually non-existent) on the consumer front.

To put it more practically, I own 970 Evos (and a Pro), EX920's, 850 evos, MX500s, several other entry level SSDs and only a couple of months back picked up a handful of 660p units (joyfully). Some of our higher end V-NAND 3-bit MLC units are used in our write-savvy workstation builds and others in a whole host of machines with various functions. As for the 660p, I have one installed in my brothers gaming rig, replacing a 250GB PNY CS900. He's already utilised around 60% of the capacity available with the OS, applications, a number of his favourite current gaming titles and cloud storage data. No performance impact here!! The SSD maintains fantastic read-speeds which is the primary function here! Likewise, a second smaller 500GB unit is installed in our office/accounting build which also runs a whole host of weighty excel data sheets (50-200mb each). Again no signs of performance degradation by any means!

Bottom line: Unless your specific workload demands otherwise, the 660p maintains a stella-SSD choice with a drool-worthy price tag.
