Hello guys :D

I decided what computer I build for 3d Animation, Video editing, VFX, Photo editing, Game Engine.
The hardware are:
  • CPU: AMD Ryzen 9 5900X
  • Motherboard: ASrock X570 Steel Legend
  • RAM: G.Skill TridentZ Neo 32GB DDR4-3200MHz (F4-3200C16Q-32GTZN)
  • SSD Operating System: Samsung 980 Pro SSD 1.0TB M.2 NVMe
  • SSD Project_files: Samsung 870 QVO SSD 2TB 2.5
  • HDD Backup: Seagate Barracuda 4TB
  • Graphics Card: ASUS ROG-STRIX-RTX3060TI-O8G-V2-GAMING
  • PC Case: Full Tower
But I need here your help about for PSU and CPU Air Cooler.
From CPU Air Cooler, which brand should I get Cooler Master or BeQuiet or Noctua or Corsair? Also what to look out for in the specifications?
From PSU what are the differences between Gold, Platinum, Bronze, Silver, Gold and Titanium? Also, from a brand like Cooler Master, it sees something in order and wants to ask, what are the differences? Also, from Corsair, what are the differences between them like Ax1600i, HX, RMx, RM, CX-F, CX-M, CV? Finally, how many watts to put in the pc in Greece?

Any decent 750+ watt power supply will suffice Seasonic,EVGA,Corsair etc RMx is decent from corsair.

If you want a beefy cooler go with something like a Dark Rock Pro 4 (may effect being able to see ram sticks)

Or just a Coolermaster 212 BE I have ran those on 5900x with no issues.

The psu wattage required is mainly driven by the graphics card.
Here is a handy chart:

For 3060ti, it says 575w.
Gold, bronze, silver, etc. are efficiency standards which I might ignore.

A quality 650w psu should be sufficient.
But, I have no problem overprovisioning a PSU a bit. Say by 20%.
It will allow for a stronger future graphics card upgrade.
It will run cooler, quieter, and more efficiently in the middle third of it's range.
A PSU will only use the wattage demanded of it, regardless of it's max capability.
The good news is that there may only be a $20 difference between 650w and 750w.
My easy test for quality is the length of the warranty. 7-10 years and you should be good.
Here is a seasonic focus GX650w with a 10 year warranty.
The 750w unit is only $10 more.

Your case is a personal thing.
Buy a case you love; you will be looking at it for a long time.
Here is one I like for cooling.
It includes two quiet 200mm front intakes:

On air coolers, I am a big fan of noctua.
They are top quality and quiet.
Here is a chart showing suitable coolers for the 5900X:

I might pick the NH-D15s.
It has no ram clearance issues. Your ram is 44mm tall.
