RAM: Micron Crucial DDR4-2666 16GBX2

Can I install the OpenCore bootloader and install MacOS
I don’t user adobe.
The apps I use most often are xcode and android studio.

The boards power delivery looks rather weak for a 3900X...

Anyway, hardware looks mostly good but never saw anyone reporting a A520 hackintosh. I guess you might one of the firsts to attempt it.

Somewhere over the Rainbow
What is your budget for these parts? Sorry to be plain but that looks like a poorly compiled list of parts. I can happily help you with this task but we need to know ideally what your location and budget is.
Cheers!

If that is the limit of your budget then you might be better off with a 3800X and a better board/faster memory.

This list does look much better, don't see any issues there. But I'd consider waiting for two weeks and get a R9 5900X instead if you don't need it today.
