    If you really want to go with Intel, 9600KF is probably the best choice considered price/performance.
    But the next gen Intel CPUs are coming (and on a total new platform) so it's really not a good time to buy now.
    Ryzen seems to be a better choice.

    If you only play games, R5 3600X preformance is close to R7. Consider it if you want to save some money.

    X570 Motherboards will probably support Ryzen 4000, not sure about X470. In my country ASRock and MSI are much more popular than ASUS, Gigabyte.
    You should find some info about which mobo and ram that will be most compatible.

    That CPU cooler is overkill since Ryzens aren't high in temp and are poor overclockers. 30$ air coolers will work just fine. (or you can just go with Wraith Spire)

    R5/7 or i5/7 + GTX 2080S consumes roughly 300-400W so 550W PSU will work just fine. If you want some headroom then 600-650W is more than enough.

    Some maybe, but most of the time the less interesting stuff. The more expensive stuff with a higher margin. At least here in The Netherlands.

    I'd prefer one of the other units Mask listed because of the PCIe/CPU COnnectors of wich the RM550x only has two.
    Meaining if you want a higher power GPU, you have to use one connector on the PSU, wich might be problematic. I'd use 2 for a VEGA or x80ti nVIdia...

    When i complete the build i can just boot and then update the bios later on with no problems right?

    Thanks!!
    PCPartPicker is wrong, all MSI Max motherboard have Ryzen 3000 support out of the box. It's one of the reasons I recommended that motherboard.

    I doesn't really matter how many connectors you have on one cable. Even 4 PEG connectors on one cable can be fine if you choose the right cables and connectors.

    It's just what you prefer. Corsair has longer warranty, be quiet! has a better fan and doesn't use incable capacitors.

    I'd rather spend the money on a big block of Metal that just works and has no moving parts...

    Personally I prefer the Austrians a bit over be quiet. . . .

    TL; DR: if you don't need it (ie for a high end Threadripper thingy for example), don't get an AIO, get a normal, medium size Heatsink. SOmething like the NH-U14 or Dark Rock 4.
    Be sure that if you get a Dark Rock, do NOT get a Dark Rock TF. I reviewed the TF and found the mount to be bad. I personally would opt for a Noctua NH-D15 or an NH-D14 with new fans.
