I changed everything except for the processor and case. The most important change was the power supply. I selected a lower wattage unit but is higher quality and plenty of power for your rig.

The memory was changed to a single 8GB stick because the motherboard only has two slots for memory. When you are ready to upgrade just add another 8GB stick.

The storage drive was changed to a 2TB unit for less money.
