This is my first time building a desktop.
Without knowing exactly what you intend to do with it, this seems a perfectly reasonable build. If you want to cut cost more, you really only need 8gb ram for gaming (assuming that is the intent of the build given the parts).
Decrease your RAM to 8GB and get an i5 6500 instead.
Also get an HDD, the Western Digital 1TB for like 50 bucks will do just fine.
Is i5-6400 noticeably worse than 6500?
It's a bit better, not that much, but here's what I meant.
Cheaper RAM, a slightly better CPU, an HDD, a cheaper SSD, all for a better price. You can't really store much with only an SSD, boot the OS on the SSD, and HDD uses everything else.

This is also a solid option. With the SSD you have in your build it will store the OS, necessary programs and a few games. And you can always grab more storage later if you need it. But this will definitely give you pretty much all the space you need from the get go without needing the upgrade later.
I'd second this build, definitely a better upgrade for somewhat the same price.
