370 is old gen now, 470 is around the same price/slightly cheaper.

The rest looks ok to me tho if gaming is your focus you prolly don't need to start with 16gig ram.

edit. a cheap z mobo and faster ram can help you squeeze the most out of the i3, but that's gonna bump the cost up a little ofc.

If your budget is up to a grand i would get much faster ram, put the ssd back in, and drop the hdd to a wd blue.

You'll prolly need a couple extra case fans too as iirc that case only comes with one.
