PC Component Upgrade



My current PC I built 5 years ago. I've recently been running into an issue with running out of harddrive space. I have considered just getting a PCI card and adding in an M.2 drive. But I'm leaning more toward replacing the MB and CPU. If I go this route, then I would obviously want a MB with at least 2 M.2 slots on it.

The games I play are Paraox games, a few light RTS games, like They Are Billions, and turn based games.

What I currently have is as follows:

Corsair 760T ATX Full Tower Case

Hydro 110i CPU Cooler

Asus ROG Crosshair VI Hero MB

Ryzen 5 1600X 3.6ghz CPU

EVGA Hybrid FTW GeFore GTX 1080 GPU

Blue-ray player

Samsung 960 EVO 1 TB M.2 Drive

Corsair Vengeance LPX 16 GB DDR4-3200 PC4-25600 RAM

G.Skill Ripjaws 32GB DDR4-3200 PC4-25600 RAM

EVGA SuperNOVA G3 750 Watt 80 Plus Gold ATX PSU

What I'm currently looking at is;

Ryzen 5 5600X 3.7ghz CPU. PN: 100-100000065BO

Inland 2TB M.2 Drive. PN: 2TB NVME QLC V2

What I need assistance with is the MB. I've looked at a few, some really good choices available. My total budget is about $700, with the CPU and M.2 Drive taking about $350 already.

Also, looking at possibly upgrading my video card in the next year or two.

Thanks for any thoughts and feedback.
