  1. That GPU is outperformed by the new generation GTX 10 series card. I'd rather buy a GTX 1060 instead. See benchmakrs.

  2. Also, with overclocking I would go with some high-speed RAM. If you edit the part list below, you'll see all the RAMs filtered with 3000+ compatible clock speeds.

  3. Why don't you buy a single 500 GB SSD instead of two 250 GB SSDs? It's typically cheaper to buy a single larger drive than two smaller capacity ones.

  4. You could get better storage space for money if you'd look for HDDs around 3 TB space.

  5. If you want to add SLI later on (2nd GPU) you should consider (at least) the Corsiar RMX 650 PSU instead.
