Looks like a solid build. 🙂
Your memory kit, that Kingston Savage 2x8Gb 1600Mhz kit, is not on the Qualified Vendor List on the Asus VII Ranger support page, tough this doesn't mean they won't work but it could probably be that you will encounter problems. Maybe have a look at the list (again) and choose a kit, which is officially supported. 😉

In my opinion I would buy a monitor with a higher resolution than FHD, at least WQHD and at best 4K, if the budget allows it. 😉
Never heard of that Logitech G103 keyboard, it seems that it isn't even available in my region. :confused: I prefer mechanical keyboards over membrane ones. I have a Logitech G19 and a Logitech G710+, I like it a lot more to work and game on the G710+ than on the G19, there's a real difference and well worth the extra money. 😄

Didn't even know there is vendor list, i'll look at it now, thank you. Budget doesn't allow me to buy better monitor, maybe in the future, but for now i think it's okay for the price, as it's logitech g103 available only ij some parts of europe, cheap but good looking 🙂

If you're going to be gaming, a mechanical keyboard is most definitely the way to go.
Not sure if it's available in your area, but the Corsair K70 or K95 are solid mechanical keyboards.
If you'll be doing some serious overclocking, you may want to consider a closed loop WC unit like the H100 or H110.

I'll be gaming, but don't need mechanical keyboard atm, maybe later when i save some money 😉 And wont do any overclocking, or maybe just little for now. And when it comes to liquid cooling, just it's not my area, don't really know much about them. Do you need to refill H110 over time?

No you dont need to refill the h110, and your list looks great..

Thanks 🙂
Is there any good but not too expensive case so i can mount h110? Because it doesn't fit in cooler master n600. And which one is better, h110 or h105? H105 seems better in cooling but louder :S

I build a lot of rigs and one of my favorite cases is the corsair 540 carbide, The h110 will fit very easy..

540 looks great and all, but not in my budget :S so i need some other case priced somwhere like cooler master n600. Or i could buy corsair h90 cooler, and it fits on cooler master case 🙂

The H90 is a great cooler, just make sure that you get two high quality 140mm push/pull fans.
