    I will buy a PC within the next 3 weeks. After that I don't plan on upgrading in the next 3 years (will overclock though). I want to be able to play most games out now (and hopefully later too) at max settings in 60fps in a single 1080p monitor setup (don't plan on upgrading this either). So is this build sufficient.

    Yes your build is perfectly fine. bit overkill really with that high speed RAM and the motherboard. you could save some cash on that and maybe get an i7 instead. Also since you're overclocking i recommend getting an AIO cooler instead. thermaltake's water 3.0 360mm at 12k from ucc or Cooler master's 240m at 10k from binarylogic.

    Are samsung ssd available in bd, if so, buy ssd 850 evo. Its better than transcend ones.

    Also spend more money on cpu, get an i7, and a bit less money on the motherboard.

    If you can, add a decent sound card as well. A good gaming pc isn't complete without a soundcard.

    I agree with Ehsas on the cpu cooler. If you intend on overclocking get an AIO. Air coolers are great for stability and reliability but for OC the 30 degrees ambient in Bangladesh does not help much. You will get more headroom and better temperature (peace of mind eh?) with a good AIO cooler.

    And, if you intend on buying transcend ssd, get the 256GB premium one(SSD370S) not the normal one(they are both same price). Also, more storage will allow you to make a game install partition. It's never a loss to invest in a SSD.

    Depends, I've seen CPU heavy games nowadays improving frames via faster RAM. As such example was Fallout 4 or Witcher 3

    True, higher ram speed does affect fps in some games. but he can simply overclock the ram to a higher speed...saving him money in the process and since he already mentioned that he's going to be overclocking.
