I don't need any memory, and i have a 2TB HDD already. I would like an SSD for the OS and i have Windows 10 Home, so I don't need that. I also already have peripherals. If this build can be done I would appreciate it if someone would help me decide what to buy. Thanks.

DDR3 or DDR4? It has to be compatible with the mobo and CPU.

It's alright it's not that hard for me to find a replacement for something like that. Thanks for the info though.
