PSU is by seasonic which is basically synonymous with quality. Ram can be a tad trickier to pick as it will depend on how much you want and at what speed-I linked a 2x8gb ram kit @3000mhz
 
for 1000 bucks, this is what i would get :

Few words
Corsair Vengeance LPX is normal profile RAM (33.5mm tall) and won't interfere with big CPU coolers (e.g Dark Rock Pro 3). Also, 16GB 2666 Mhz of RAM is more enough for today's gaming needs.
Seasonic Focus+ 550 is one of the latest PSU lines from Seasonic. PSU has 80+ Gold certification, is 140mm in depth and comes with 10 years of OEM warranty. PSU is also fully modular.

All my 3 PCs: Skylake, Haswell and AMD are also powered by Seasonic. Full specs with pics in my sig.

Oh, all fully-modular Seasonic PSUs are also compatible with CableMod SE-series custom sleeved power cables.
To match my Skylake's black & red theme and Haswell's black & blue theme, i have replaced the stock black power cables with CableMod SE-series custom sleeved power cables,
