Psu should be fine. What type of gaming are you doing? Depending on the games, you could go for an i3-6100 for better single thread performance since most games dont rely on multi core processing.

I would hold off until the GTX 1050/1050ti come out they may be better value and a lot faster

I'd definitely waiting out on the video card, and if you have to buy asap, there are a ton of deals on the rx 480 and GTX 1060

MSI 4GB RX 480 $164.99 http://slickdeals.net/f/9214107-msi-radeon-rx-480-directx-12-rx-480-gaming-x-4g-4gb-164-99-ar

XFX 8gb RX 480 $204.99 http://slickdeals.net/f/9213523-xfx-radeon-rs-rx-480-8gb-only-205-after-10-rebate-masterpass-code-lowest-price-ever-free-shipping

MSI 3gb GTX 1060 165 http://slickdeals.net/f/9211191-msi-geforce-gtx-1060-gaming-x-3-gb-192-bit-gddr5-pci-e-3-0-video-card-for-189-99ar-asus-z170-p-lga-1151-intel-z170-atx-motherboard-for-79-99-ar-or-less-more-newegg-com

Also, I'd recommend buying a EVGA 500+ watt PSU instead of the Corsair CXM. 450 watts is nice, but if you plan to future you'd have to replace it anyways. You can usually find these power supplies for around 50-60. The motherboard is perfectly fine, just be sure to see if has enough usb ports, and usb headers to match your case.
