Just wanting to get a final opinion on my build before I start gathering the pieces. I may still go with 4x8GB RAM vs 2 as I don't see myself needing/getting more then 32GB of RAM.

Any other suggestions on my White build is also welcomed.

32GB is way too much RAM for anyone. Go with a 16GB kit to save some money. It won't impact performance a bit. Get a better video card! The 780 is like 5 years old. Buy a 1050 Ti. It's only a bit over 100$.

I do 32GB as I occasionally run VM's locally on the PC's. As for the GPU, I don't plan on replacing that until next year. It is only 2 years old fyi.
