You should consider having an SSD drive for OS

I agree about an SSD.

My only other comment is to order the Motherboard, CPU, RAM and Graphics card from the same supplier and state you want them to work together, just in case there are any compatability issues.

Click here for memory and SSD support list. Your memory is NOT Supported. Your mobo requires DDR4 not DDR3.

Click here for memory and CPU support list

No problem at graphic card and PSU so I can confirm that all will match.
