I'm building a gaming pc and all i need to get now is the PSU and then it's finished but i saw that the same PSU has 3 different ratings why is that? also here is the build.
Im still a bit skeptical about it but please let me if the current one i have chosen would be the optimal one for this build https://pcpartpicker.com/list/GLhC3b

you mean the supernova's?
there is the G2/3 which the g means gold
the P2/3 which the p means platinum
the T2/3 is for titanium
each is a step higher than the last on the ladder of efficiency.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/80_Plus
the ratings have more than the three listed the three listed are the top of the ladder, the bottom is plus, bronze and silver.
plus is the lowest efficiency and titanium is the highest. less waste heat, lower draw from the wall for the same load, etc.

no one can fault the choice you made, great unit, great warranty, great choice, enjoy.
