Any Suggestions?

Hey all, I'm currently in the process of buying a new high end rig. Got a full spec to post. Just want to see if I've made any major mistakes or if it could be improved any, without too much cost.

So, as asked for here's the questions asked. I've skipped a few, as I already know:
• Bournemouth, UK
• £2500 budget
• Just the system
• 3D CGI Work/Gaming
• Some over clocking
• Full build

So here are the specs so far:

CM Storm Trooper Windowed Case
Rampage IV Extreme Black Edition X79 Mobo
4930K 3.40GHz @ 4.2GHz
EVGA GeForce GTX 780 Superclock
Vengeance Pro Silver 16GB (2x8G 1866MHz
Samsung 120GB SSD 840 EVO
WD Caviar Black 2TB
Asus 24x DVD-RW
Corsair HX 1050W PSU
XSPC Raystorm 750 EX240 Kit
Windows 7 Pro 64-Bit
BitFenix Spectre PRO 120mm Fan Green LED
BitFenix Spectre PRO 140mm Fan Green LED

One question I do have is, I had planned to around Feb next year add another 16GB of mem. I've been advised against this and told I should buy a 32GB kit now, so I get matching sticks. The person in question knows a lot about memory, so I've taken his advice, but is their anyway I could get away with getting 16GB now and 16GB in Feb?

Thanks for any help in advance.
