I would recommend 2 8gb ram because much easier upgrade in the future
get windows elsewhere for much cheaper lIke 30 or 40
i think get a bronze or gold rating is good enough
try to get a 500gb ssd
remove the cd thingy
I personally would go for more SSD storage. I like to have all of my games installed on an SSD as well. Get a couple TB drive for media, and then spend the rest on SSDs. A small one for your OS then one or two for application​s and games.

I don't even have a regular HDD in ny gaming rig anymore.

Again personal opinion only. But if you are gonna buy a fairly high end processor like that buy a decent cooler, or an AiO water cooler. And something decent to house it. $350 processor, $400 gpu with a $20 cooler and $40 case. Unless you are shaving cost to stay in budget.
Assuming this a gaming rig, it looks good to me. The only recommendation I have is getting two of the 4TB disks and making a RAID 1 array. Any data you put on this array will be preserved if one of the disks fails. So things like documents, pictures, etc should live there. All your volatile data can go on the SSD - OS, games, etc.
