You have some good parts here. I would get a better cpu cooler though if you want to do any overclocking.

Also an ssd, at least 120gb for the OS, would make the pc feel a lot faster.

Lastly, the monitor/gpu combo doesn't make a lot of sense. You have a 500 dollar gpu for a 1080p 60hz monitor. Do that gpu some justice and get a better monitor. If you're going to stick to the 1080p 60hz, you can run that with a 1060. A good rule of thumb for balance is to spend about as much on the monitor as you do on the gpu.

yes definitely get a 144Hz moniter otherwise your wasting money on your graphics card. An SSD is always worth it!

Apart from what Huge said, 16gig is fine (overkill tbh) for gaming if that's your main focus, I like a gold rated psu as while one costs more initially you save in the long run via a cheaper electricity bill.

What kind of monitor are you using?
