Looks good. I'd get a 2x4 RAM kit or, depending on how much editing you do, a 2x8.

Have you considered 144hz or 1440p monitors? 1080p 60hz is cake for a 1060 and pixel density of 1080p at 27" isn't pretty.

Going to get another 8gb later on, but sadly that's like my budget so I can't afford a 144hz monitor T_T

This is nearly the same price as your display: http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/product/fFgPxr/aoc-monitor-g2460fq

Would be nice to have a 27" monitor :D

Pixel density of 1080p at 27" is pretty atrocious.

Agree with this, it's not great.
