Change the PSU, according to helpful guys who replied to my thread.
Try seasonic, corsair and XFX. Theyre more reliable. Other than that everything SHOULD work fine. from the research I did, making my own build :D .

Everything will work. One thing though. You have an 8 Gb Ram kit in your list and a 4 Gb RAM that you said you dont know atm. Are you trying to fill up all the channels of your MOBO? Also, what is your budget?

How much RAM do you really want? If its for gaming, go for the 2 x 4gb RAM, if its for everyday use, (work and stuff) then you can save up some cash by going with the 2x2gb.

Wait for a pro to answer if you can put 2 kits of RAM in the mobo. Havent tried putting 4 in. xD
You can sell the 2 x 2gb and then buy more RAM but that isnt much of an option.
If you want 16GB RAM its a bit too overkill. (Unless you wanna play BF3 on Ultra)
But this is according to what I have read, as I am no pro XD

You can install different sets as long as each pair is identical. You're setup would be fine. You can't just plug and play though. Installation usually is something like this:
1st pair in slots 1 and 3.
2nd pair in slots 2 and 4.
Read your MoBo manual for correct installation and just to make sure that it supports quad channel.

Nw333 said to change the PSU, but I think it'll be fine for you, especially since you already have it. Cooler Master is a reputable brand for cases and cooling, so the PSU shouldn't be bad. Even if its not very efficient, it is 700W and that setup only uses like 400, so it will be good anyway.
