Go with one 8gb ram module and you can double it later. Go with a 1tb spinner now and partition your OS install. Later you can clone it to the 256gb SSD and place the spinner in a external enclosure via usb 3.0.
Trust me, I won't need anywhere near that amount. Will add in a spinner if needed. So here is an update with the 1x8gb ram advice: Chassis & Display
