How does that look? Any inputs/improvements? Already have storage and peripherals from my current rig.

Looks good.

The only thing I noticed is that overpriced GTX 1060. You can get good clocked 1060s for 250$ upwards. The usual price of the Strix 335$ is too high.

For only 65$ more you can buy a G1 Gaming GTX 1070

Long story short,

I would either get this or this

Looks good, except it appears that motherboard only supports DDR4 @ 2133mhz, and the RAM you've chosen is 2400. An alternative motherboard could be the Asus Z170M-Plus, which is around $120 but will support speeds up to 3400mhz. Alternatively, you could find some RAM that runs at 2133, which is technically a downgrade but probably wouldn't cause a large impact on performance.
