Budget (including currency): €6000 -> €7000

Country: Netherlands (I am planning to shop at Alternate.nl)

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: GPU Rendering, GPU/CPU base simulation, VFX work, UE5 Development 

Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): 
Software that I use often: Maya, Houdini, I render with Redshift (GPU renderer)

I need a lot of headroom on things like caching stuff in RAM.

Hello! It's been quite a while. I built my last PC over 4-5 years ago and especially now that I am putting it through it's paces, It's starting to show it's age.
I want to build an entirely new system.

Here's the parts I know for SURE are gonna be in there:
Case : Lian Li O11 (wide case, can hold lots of things)

CPU: AMD Ryzen 9 5950X
GPU: GTX 3090 TI (I don't know which brand to go with yet)

I just need info for:
A motherboard: I was thinking of the GIGABYTE X570S UD.
2 TB NVME Drive for software + OS (Seagate FireCuda 530 2 TB SSD is what I had in mind)
8 TB HDD for long term storage. (Seagate SkyHawk 8TB)
64 Gb Ram, preferably > 3000 Mhz (I need help with matching RAM to my motherboard, last build I did I screwed up there)
A proper power supply. How much power is this going to draw?
Cooling: I want to invest in some quality fans and heatfins to cool my CPU with.

I hope I provided you guys with enough info!
I really appreciate the help since I'm very insecure about the RAM, power and cooling part.
Some overhead in power wouldn't hurt since I am running 2 graphics cards, after all.





I went with a DARK ROCK PRO4
I upgraded mobo to GIGABYTE X570 AORUS XTREME. 
I was only able to get 1 GPU, instead of the 2 I'd hoped for, but it's the MSI GeForce Suprim 3090 ti.
I've got 1500W power, so hopefully I can fit in a second GPU in the future.
For RAM I went with the CORSAIR Vengeance LPX 64GB (4x16) , it was listed as being compatible. https://pangoly.com/en/compatibility
I added 5 Noctua NF-A12x25 PWM fans because my PC is gonna be running LONG. :')

That kinda solves a lot of my issues and ensures I won't be bottlenecked in the future!
