this is going to be my first gaming build.

General thoughts on this build and/or improvements and adjustments i could make and why those changes would be beneficial to the PC would be great.

Thanks

A z170 motherboard so you can overclock, a better cooler, faster ram, also, you do not need that much wattage.

Thanks for the suggestion. I will definitely purchase the Z170 ram. However , i'll have problems purchasing the other componenents as I live in NZ and to purchase these items , i must purchase them online and get them shipped to NZ which I will cost me more money , which is something I am unwilling to do. Would my current cooler (Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler) be sufficient enough as I don't want to pay more for a cooler. Also , what would be the benefits of purchasing the corsair vengeance as opposed to the current RAM (Kingston HyperX Fury Black 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-2133 Memory).

Thank You

Faster ram has small implications on performance in games, and diminishing returns past 2800, but still you can take advantage of this motherboard supporting them.
