Can you upgrade your SATA SSD to an M.2?

You could possibly fit in a 2060 to the build and run max settings for 1440p@60. Like this one: https://www.amazon.com/EVGA-GeForce-GAMING-Graphics-06G-P4-2062-KR/dp/B07NXYT866

Cases you can search for more case fans, but if you're not overclocking then generally 1 intake and 1 exhaust is enough. 2 intake + 1 exhaust to keep positive case pressure.

Are we still going? I wanted to know if @SlugSh0t would consider an M.2 NVMe.

The 1660 is a solid card, but I wouldn't exactly call it a 1440p+ card, unless you're OK with making concessions on settings. It's modestly more powerful than a 6GB 1060 which is pretty firmly a 1080p card.

Well, chances are, if you want to consistently play at 1440p in modern games you'll either need to drop your settings or go with a more powerful GPU, I'm just saying.

If you plan on upgrading next year u can get a 2nd hand 1070 for that price

Also look for a mobo+cpu deal to save some $$$$
