Honestly you nailed the specs.

It wouldnt be a terrible idea to look at the used market btw. even if you dont feel comfortable buying components such as psu, cpu or gpu used. get things like hard drives, cases and fans used. this way you can save money on those parts and spend more on the gpu/cpu (more fps baby!!) or you could spend the same used as you would on something new and you might get a better case or some slick RGB fans :p

I would only do 1x stick of RAM for a very short amount of time, like you are planning to buy that exact stick next week or so....otherwise, go ahead for a 2x8 kit if you can, or do 2x4 if it's going to be a bit. Going single channel impacts frames a great deal.
