$900 Full Gaming Setup Feedback

Hi. I'm looking to build a PC that can run most games at 1080p 60fps at high to ultra settings all in a budget build.

Some of the things that I want out of this setup:

-I want this PC to be able to run all the latest games at high to ultra settings at 60fps 1080p.

-Some of the games that I want to be able to run are Arma 3, Rust, Rising Storm 2, Garry's Mod, Witcher 3, Grand Theft Auto 5, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Battlefield 4, Battlefield 1, and Verdun.

-I want this setup to include the PC itself, monitor, keyboard and mouse, optical drive, and operating system.

-I want this setup to last at least two years without having to make any major upgrades. I'm willing to drop down to medium settings in the future.

My Setup Idea:

This cpu would last you longer than the i3 will, not saying the i3 isn't good I have one and it is good, but the i5 is stronger no doubt PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant

i would stick with a single 8gb stick for future upgrading. That case is questionable. The mortar is a better mobo

i got the psu for 15 bucks on a newegg flash deal :). I am concerned that the mobo doesnt have great reliability on amazon though honestly thats the only place i looked. At some point relatively soon we will start to need more than 8gb of ram so i feel like it would just be better to get a single 8gb stick.
