Looking for remaining parts for my gaming build.

I'm planning on making a only for gaming pc and would love to have the parts last for around 5+ years, so if overclocking the CPU would damage it, then i don't want it overclocked( i would basically replace parts as needed down the road). I asked a while ago for a full part list, but due to some (credit/shipping/and out of stock) issues, i need a part list working around what already been gathered. I would like the case to be mostly black theme, maybe add some red, if not then all black is fine. I would like the case to be somewhat sturdy, so it wont get dented or anything during shipping. Form factor... maybe microATX if possible, or ATX if needed. I already have a keyboard/mouse and monitor. I will be using free Win 10 from the promo. I'll need the possibility to add WiFi, cause i wont always be able to use Ethernet cable. I will be playing games like GW2, PoE, and many similar games. For the rest of the parts, i have like a budget of 450$. I am located on USA East Coast. Here is the list for the parts that i have already. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/YZGJK8

I am not sure what parts is available to you for shipment since there is no clarification about it. So I put two color schemes with $450 kept in mind. They are just ideas. I hope it helps some but if it does not appear available to you... then something needs to be resaid on what online stores will work for you.

I'm sorry, I forgot to switch out the PSU on the black scheme... so I would switch the PSU to this XFX at the moment.

My friend found a nice case i liked, i placed it into the build and compatibility check is all good. I looked at the rest of the parts, and have a few questions. I heard that 16Gb ram is overkill, and 8GB is all that's needed, would maybe using 2x4gb now be fine and later when i need more i could go 4x4GB?I've seen so many mixed reviews of all parts that its basically only split into fanboy against fanboy... and not really about the way that both brands can work together with different parts to make a great and reliable gaming computer. hope you don't mind but i would like to see a few different people opinions and waited for a few days, but your the only one who has spoken. Would it be hasty of me to make a new updated forum? Here's the updated list with only the parts i have, as well as my new budget, i got a windfall recently and wouldn't mind using it if needed for a better compatibility between parts. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/v9sWkL

Glad to hear about the case.
16GB overkill? 32GB is more overkill but there is a modern game actually recommending 16GB. Star Wars Battlefront is one of them. Is it a need right away? No, indeed.
A 2x4GB is considered best for gaming. I wouldn't be saying 16GB is overkill because I been mouth dropped before when I saw a lot of RAM for a gaming rig. But realistically it's not a need right off the bat. It does actually help some in my own experiences but not a major need until who knows when more games become like Star Wars Battlefront. So the point is, 8GB is plenty and 16GB is nice to have but not a minimum requirement.
Oddly I was wondering myself about the lack of few opinions about this request of yours. Normally people would have jump in and then the down-votes occur out of the blue. Or maybe that's just certain times. Yes, just update your next forum on what you are looking for. Whatever opinions or feedback you need further to satisfy your needs.

Here is my last suggestion but I wish you for the best. I hope you get more opinions for your build on what you needed earlier.
