  1. The i5-6500 is better value for your money. It is only 100 Mhz slower, but considerably cheaper.
  2. The (Kingston SSDNow V300)(http://www.kingston.com/en/ssd/consumer/sv300s3) series perform really poor. They are cheap but your model has 180 MB/s read and 133 MB/s write performance, which is like 1/3 of the regular 450 - 550 MB/s read/write speeds of other drives. Also 120 GB is not much either. I would go for the Crucial CT275MX300SSD1 for $69.95 or even larger SSDs.
  3. Why do you spend $29.88 on an aftermarket CPU cooler? Why not just use the one shipped with the CPU?
  4. You could get RAM much cheaper, e.g.: Corsair Vengeance LPX 8GB (1 x 8GB) DDR4-2400 Memory for $35.98.
  5. Your case does not support 140 mm fans, only 120 mm ones.

There you go, the adjusted build:
