The cooler should have thermal paste included, so you dont need extra.
The cooler should be fine, but you wont do much overclocking on it.
The fans are a little expensive for my taste

You don't need thermal paste, the cooler comes with some.

 

A 3060 Ti should NOT cost $600. Look for a RX 6700 XT (slightly faster), RX 6600 XT or RX 6650 XT (slightly slower), RX 6600 (about 3060 performance) or RTX 3060. But don't pay 600 for a 3060 Ti.

 

Samsung SSD's are overpriced. You're paying more than $100 for 500gb when you can get 1tb under 100. 

 

The motherboard isn't bad, but the Z690 UD AX is cheaper and better. Or if you don't want to overclock the CPU get a B660M from MSI.

 

Edit: This is cheaper and has a better GPU.

 For the 2tb storage. Is it faster than the one I have?

Did you use the search?

 

If the part isn't available in pcpartpicker, just use the Custom Part button at the bottom of the list.

80+ ratings certify electrical efficiency. Not quality.

It's a bit slower (not too much) because it uses PCIe 3.0. If you want similar speed you can go for a Seagate FireCuda 520, or an even better (but still cheaper) SSD is the Inland Performance.

Should not cost $600 but they do. Already bad here in the UK where a 3060ti averages out at around $900. If 3060ti MSRP was already uncompetitive, right now it's unjustifiable.

There are a lot under 500, so paying 600 is not a good idea since even 3070s go for under that. Still overpriced

I can't find any. Cheapest 3060ti on US PCPartPicker is showing me at $720 while the cheapest 3070ti goes for $640... go figure

When setting the filter expand the list and include the RTX 3060 Ti and RTX 3060 Ti LHR. 

 

A number of GPU models have multiple versions. Usually an LHR but some have other differences like memory size or type.

USD vs British currency. That could probably be the price difference

Can you get a gpu priced at $600 that is better?

Yes, far better. 3070ti's, 6750RX's should go for that price. Pretty sure 3080 msrp was meant t be around that price as well but that's far off
