Several things to consider. The 5900X is a great CPU, but that board may need a BIOS update to run it. I am not sure if that board has a bootless flash button or not.

The RAM selected looks like good quality and a decent price, but you will likely have to tweak it, and don't expect it to run 4400MHz on Ryzen easily, if at all. I would likely look into deals on 3600MHz kits. I would recommend 32GB total.

The the m.2 SSD you chose is a SATA based one. You may want to consider an NVMe drive for better performance. Consider drives like the Samsung 980 Pro, WD Black SN 850, Samsung 970 Evo etc.

You realize that is a mini ITX board in a mid tower case right? Is that what you want?

What PSU are you going to use?

I'll use a 1000W power supply or more

I researched the motherboard further

"The Gigabyte BIOS is pretty rock solid. It's possible to flash it to the latest release using a USB without even installing the CPU and RAM, which is exactly what we did and everything was updated in a matter of moments. Because we're using the Ryzen 9 5950X and it's already quite the power-hungry processor, we didn't overclock it for testing."

If you step down one level in video cards, you can save about half the price, with practically the same performance.

The main problem with mini-ITX, aside from it being hard to work around because of its size, is that it has only two memory slots. So you need to get all the memory you'll ever want right from the start. I found some fast 32GB RAM on your motherboard's list of supported RAM. I'm not sure that means you'll get 4400 speed, but it's more likely than with any random RAM.
