It looks alright to me, tho -

As the mobo only has 2 ram slots I would use 1x 8gig stick so you have an upgrade option later, that makes no difference to performance when you have a separate gpu.

A better quality, tho slightly lower watt, psu is available for a couple buck cheaper

The Seasonic S12II Bronze 430 W is a flawless power supply. It has superb voltage regulation, with all its voltages within 3% of their nominal values, extremely low noise and ripple levels, and efficiency between 83.2% and 86.3%, which is outstanding for an entry-level power supply. It is also worth mentioning the outstanding cable configuration for a 430 W unit, with two connectors for video cards and six SATA power connectors. And, to top it off, the price is more than right for all the features this power supply brings. In summary, you can buy this power supply with your eyes closed. You won’t regret it.

I would try and stretch to the 6gig 1060, iirc that has a slightly better chip in it, maybe sacrifice the mouse to begin with? It's easier to upgrade the mouse later instead of the gpu...
