This is my first build I am planning to purchase on black friday or cyber monday to hopefully save a few hundred dollars. I don't have any colour theme as the case I have selected covers everything. I mostly plan on playing CS:GO however I want a PC that will be able to play newer titles (Overwatch, COD) and still look great. I am hoping for this computer to last me a while and I do not plan on overclocking.
Please let me know if you have any recommendations on some ways to save money without hindering performance. I have picked these parts because they seem to be quite reliable online.

I am pretty set on the case, I know it is expensive but I haven't found a case that looks and performs like this
I really need some suggestions on the GPU (the one i have selected isn't out yet in BC, Canada)
I am contemplating on putting in 32GB (2x16GB) of DDR4 memory. I know this will be a $100 price hike but will leave flexibility to upgrade to 64gb and max out my mobo capacity. I know that this may be overkill and would like some thoughts/reasoning on why 32gb would suffice my usage.
