1st time builder - White Build - $1100 Budget (no GPU)

I decided to build a PC with white themed. At this moment, because i only have $1100 on my pocket, i chose to buy the GPU month or 2 months later.

The purpose of this build is for gaming and i will overclock the CPU. I don't mind playing only DOTA 2 or LoL with Intel HD for 2 months (LOL).

Because this is my 1st PC ever, i'm gonna need the monitor, OS, and optical drive for work purposes.

please give me your review or part suggestion. Here is my partlist,

The only thing is the RAM, it doesn't go with the color scheme. Corsair dominator platinum or hyperX works

Because i will see to top part of the RAM almost all the time, i think using RAM with white LED on the top will do it. GEIL have that.

gonna look for dominator and hyperx. thanks

=====updated=====

Corsair dominator really looks great!! but the price is twice of GEIL in the shop in my country.

thanks mate

the dominator platinum is DDR4-3000 which is a really expensive RAM
