Need a review of the below build to optimize it further if needed.
I primarily game at 4K with a Samsung Neo Odyssey G7 with HDR at 165hz and a second 4K Asus monitor for viewing (YouTube, Web browsing, Video editing). I also do a lot of video editing hence the extra cores.
Some ideas of general games I play - World of Warships, War Thunder, World of Warcraft, SWTOR,
List of some more demanding titles - Cyberpunk 2077 RT Overdrive, Hogwarts Legacy
Productivity titles: Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, Premier

You have three m.2 drives listed, have you a place to plug those in? the motherboard only has place for two.
Do not get the "Shift" power supply unless you are absolutely certain the case you are going to get has sufficient rear panel clearance.
Are you sure Gigabyte X670E AORUS MASTER AMD AM5 eATX Motherboard only has two M2 slots? Per the manufacturer, this board has four.
Update: You are correct it has 1 x 5.0 M2 and 1 x 4.0/3.0 M2. Wish MicroCenter builder would catch these things. With that said any other recommendation for a different board with more M2 or just getting a PCI card to add more M2? The main reason for Gigabyte was the reviews listed fewer issues with DDR5 memory and out-of-the-box configuration problems other 670 boards experienced.
Any other ATX 3.0 PSU would be recommended outside of the Shift?
I have a pair of m.2 SSD and a SATA SSD and it doesn't make any noticeable difference when playing a game. So you can do something with a PCIe add on card that takes m.2 and deal with whether that even fits after you put in the graphics card (or more likely, blocks the graphics card's fans) or just get a decent sized SATA to install games to. Or even better, just install Windows on the 4TB drive and also use it for games, and never mind getting the 2TB m.2 in the first place.
Corsair's RMx series are excellent power supplies. I actually got the Shift 1000 last weekend and it's working great. I have it in a Corsair 5000D case which has about an inch and a half of space between the back panel and the rear of the mb tray. Like I said, you just need to check the case ahead of time before you get the Shift or else there isn't room to bend the cables around. If the case doesn't have enough side space just get the regular RMx.
Looks like the X670E Aorus Master does support four M4 slots.
Just to add the M2 while used for gaming is also used for video editing.
OK well I was just going by their own website's specs page. Maybe I'm reading it wrong or looked at the wrong model board.
