How does this look for a gaming PC?

I want to be able to play most games (Battlefield 1, modded Skyrim, CS:GO, ARMA/DayZ) at 60 fps on high. I'm also looking to overclock later.

not sure if the psu brings enough power. u shouldnt safe money on psu and cooler, especially looking towards overclocking. Maybe u check out some 1k gaming rigs out their and get some ideas about what others build. Personally, unless u lack peripherals, i'd spend the extra 40 bucks on the hardware and get a good gaming board, hp and mic during x-mas sellouts.

Thank you, but I was thinking about getting an Asus Z170-A for the motherboard, so I was wondering if that would be any better than the Z170-E?
