Should i buy Be Quiet! Pure Power 11 700w or Antec Earthwatts Gold Pro 650w for my build? I saw that Be Quiet! Pure Power 11 is tier B but gold and the Antec Earthwatts is tier A black. Idk which is better for my build..

My build:

Mobo - Gigabyte Aorus Elite B550
CPU - Ryzen 5 5600x
Videocard - Galax RTX 3070
Casing - ...
Monitor - Asus VG279q
Memory - G skill Trident Z 3600mhz
Storage - Adata 1TB SSD
CPU Cooler - Noctius NH-D15

I would go with the 700w. I would also go with the modular option. The 3000 series gpus have a tendancy to spike with tdp so the extra 10$ is worth it.

The Antec is based on the Seasonic Focus Gold model and is higher quality than the Pure Power 11. The Antec has plenty of power for your build and is semi-modular so it will have a cleaner look with no extra cables cluttering up your chassis.

It will spike much more than that. The average tdp won't be very high at all, but the 3000 series founders edition cards have a lot of problems with power spiking and the recommended is much higher than 450.
