2 changes I would make:

  1. Get a lower power supply. 750 Watt is too much for one single gtx 1080, I'd recommend you a 650 Watt power supply.
  2. Get DDR4 with higher speed. You'll get an improvement on your fps and it only costs some bucks more. Imo it's worth it.

As for waiting: The longer you wait, the greater the change for you to wait longer. (For example, new things coming out and you want their prices to drop etc.) But if you can't maybe buy the GPU later one since that thing costs a lot.

Btw I see you going for a Red/Black build. Maybe get the Ripjaws V, they are cheap, good and red :)

EDIT: Just saw that you are buying a monitor with Freesync support, but you're getting a Nvidia GPU. Fyi they don't work together. You would need an AMD GPU or get a G-Sync monitor if you want that feature.

Hey Sure thing mate Here is an example: http://pcpartpicker.com/product/Cf98TW/gskill-memory-f43200c16d16gvkb Its not that much more expensive than the other ones you mentioned (10 bucks)

Are Ripjaws V fast enough for gaming 1440p? Yes I decided to go with this screen because it's 144hz and 1440p and 1 ms only.. I know that this monitor fits more an AMD guy but G sync is too expensive for me for almost nothing. Thank you again for helping me out

There are benchmarks that show differences (around 5 fps more) and the price difference isnt huge. So get the fastest you can afford so you dont have to worry later on. :) And G-Sync really is worth it. (From what ive heard, was too expensive for me to buy too.)

This is very true. Get your part list locked in and then watch the prices to jump on deals. Black Friday can be sorta underwhelming!
