Apart from the lowering the configuration , can i prpccer installation with the above hardware components? Because I just wanted to make sure it works... I really don't wanna get disappointed if I've selected something which isn't compatible..

Ps. I'm going not getting any gpu , I'm just going to use onboard one... If should i do any extra step during the installation process ?

You can get a GPU later, if you get a AMD RX 560-570-580 there wil not be any major fixes needed. If you get a new Nvidia card you will need web drivers and it will require some fixes. But you can do this all later after installation is complete.

Yes just follow it from the beginning.
Honestly if you parts aren't exactly the same as the build you follow, you probably still need to do some extra works. But don't worry, people are here to help. Go for it.

Get i3 8100 and compatible mobo. You will spend about the same or little more and get a lot more Value for money. If you want to go cheap, you can get the parts you mentioned second hand on OLX or Quikr for cheaper.
