Greetings,
Answers for the questions you are asking can be broad. 

Cooling - Air, water?
GPU - You don't even need one, but your graphics intensive apps would perform better.  Brand preference?, budget?
PSU - often a matter of personal preference.  Also depends on number of installed devices and GPU?

This was my approach to building a Aorus Master / i9-9900K based PC...

1) Do your research first.  I built a spreadsheet of every component for my PC, detailing prices for about ten on-line suppliers.  This is the easiest way to determine what you are going to buy and from where.
2) For graphics (Photo editing, etc., but not gaming), I just transferred my Radeon R9 270X from my old rig.  It still works great!
3) I went with the Corsair HX850i PSU, which is a good match for this combo.

Also, cooling is important since this CPU runs very hot.  I went with the Corsair H115i PRO AIO water cooler.  I would advise against the RGB models as they seem to have loads of issues (check the Corsair forums).  You are also going to need a decent case (Fractal Define R6 is a great choice), and additional case fans (Corsair ML fans are my choice).

Some UK retailers from my list...

Scan
Aria
Amazon
eBay
OverClockers
CCL
Novatech
eBuyer
Awd-It
etc.
