    Are you planning to upgrade or is the system specs listed what you will be using? While it might be worth going for PCIe 4.0 support the current system specs wouldn't support the increase in speed. Also important to know is if you had to pick between the fastest drive possible or the most reliable drive possible what would you pick?

    While true, they don't need 4.0 to be supported ...and the MTBF of these drives are usually far longer than most people keep their systems..I'd be less likely to worry about reliability (in terms of longevity) than most people tho.

    No, Hoggle is saying fast PCie 4.0 drives are pointless on Intel builds, just wasting the money. PCIe 4.0 drives have a large price premium for that performance. 
     
    It's easier to recommend SSDs based on the price tier you're aiming for, WD Black SN750 and Corsair's MP510 are pretty good and both have 5 year warranties. But if you want something PCIe 4.0 and fast, the Corsair MP600 is the higher tier option.

    Modern AMD Ryzen Builds, AMD has supported PCI-E Gen 4 for over a year now. Intel is just currently behind on that front.

    By point of reference, most of the (including the Corsair and Sabrent) have an endurance rating of 1800TBW (Terabytes written)..
     
    I've had my Samsung 970 Pro (512GB) for ..2 years? ..and written 7 Terabytes. As I recall it has a 600 TBW endurance rating...
     
    By the time I replace this (which is likely next year) I won't even be close to the rating.
     
    I truly don't think you'll have an issue whatever you choose.

    Corsair or Sabrent, whatever cheaper I guess. Aorus sell them to.
