Literally threw a bunch of the cheapest parts I could find on pcpp to create a under $800 system powered by an i5 6500 and GTX 1060 6gb. Is this even worthy to bring alive or something that I went too far with...

Could be worse... you could've gotten a Logisys or a NEX PSU... But it's not the worst I've seen, but it's most certainly not the best.

Here's my attempt to created a lower end version with full peripherals around $800. Is this a good build to purchase as my first system.

Doesn't matter. If you can afford the best PSU on the market, go for it. It's all a matter of opinion, however.

You've started off very well here. I already forgot what I changed, I think the RAM and the PSU.

I was thinking 1 8gb sticj since theres only 2 ram slots. You can take out the peripherals.
