I'am building a new PC and chose some parts out -

i3 3220 103€
S1155 ATX/Z77 PRO3 ASROCK 75,7€
Cooler Master K(night) 380 42,6€
Crucial 8GB Tactical Tracer UDIMM DDR3-1600, PC3-12800, CL8, 1.5V 54,2€
BenQ RL2240H 123,2€
Corsair GS Series™ GS600 2013 EDITION 74,5€
DD SATA 500GB 7200RPM 3GB/S/16MB 7K1000.C 0F10381 HGST 44,3€
Total 517,5

Should I change something or are those good picks? I'm planning to get GPU later [PowerColor 7870 Myst] and will upgrade CPU too then.

Or would it be better to go with AMD system? I looked at 5800k for its GPU power, but I guess it will start bottlenecking in future if I want to get decent GPU and overall, building a new computer then by scratch, will cost even more

get a dual channel memory instead of a single 8gb
dual channel means 2 sticks comes in 1 box
the only way you can achive dual channel is with buying dual channel memry kits
if you bought 2 single 8gb sticks you wont achive the perfomance of dual channel memory
instead of upgrading the cpu later dont get the parts now and save the €100
you wont miss out on anything f u waited a month or 2
