I 'm making a new gaming pc please opinions

i want a serius gaming pc mid budget like 700-750euros
i want to play games on the fullest.

MSI Motherboard 970 Gaming (970/AM3+/DDR3)
AMD CPU FX 8320 (AM3+/3.50 GHz/16 MB)
Sapphire VGA R7 360 Nitro 2GB
Corsair Desktop RAM Value 8GB 1333MHz DDR3
TeamGroup Desktop RAM Dark 4GB 1600MHz DDR3
TeamGroup SSD Dark L3 60GB
Toshiba Desktop HDD 500GB

motherboards can take and combine sli's and crossfire 's same or not(for later upgrades)
the cpu is 8core (never tried an AMD before i ve heard bad rumors but i ve seen a 6core and it was very good besides ps4 and xbox one have amd 6core
radeon r7 360 is a ddr5 so i hope i wont have any problems
i hope ram will be enough and i can upgrade it up to 32gb in the feature
will it rape every game out there?

If you run your ram like that you will have 12GB@1333 speed and running in single channel mode.
That's not the best mix for gaming.

If the budget allows what you want is a matched pair 'a 2x kit' @1866.
That gets you the extra ram speed and the dual channel feature.
Just be sure to put the sticks in the proper the manual.

so is it better a 2x4gb at 1600? or one 8gb 1600 i dont think i can afford more

The 2x4GB@1600 is better.
See if the budget will stretch to 2x4GB@1866.
Where I'm at it looks like about an extra 5 bucks.
