Yes. You don't have an operating system or a headset. Give a minute, I can make a parts list.

Made a few edits, tell me what you think

You don't need 16 GB of ram just for gaming, you only need 8.

Thanks for that. Decided to go with ATI graphics because the Freesync monitors are so much cheaper than G-sync. Do I really need an aftermarket cooler?

No.

Also, you don't need a Z170 motherboard for a locked processor. You could get a cheaper H170 with the same performance and options. Gives you a little more money to work with possibly.

Good shout - I was thinking that but then I couldn't find an H170 for much less

Your formatting is messed up.

The PSU costs way too much. I would get a Evga G2 or a Corsair RMx instead. Both are cheaper and better.
