First build opinions/suggestions

How's this look so far? I'm really looking for input about the psu. It's on a good deal from NewEgg atm and would like to purchase if this is a good complement to my build model. ..I already bought a case, the Phanteks Enthoo pro M. I'm still researching the gpu as that will be added at a later time after initial build. Thanks for any comments. http://pcpartpicker.com/list/qspp3F

Lol. I think my post got lost in the fast pace of the opinions section...I think I have nailed down what I believe to be a good budget gaming build. I added the evga 550w G2 psu and the 1060 gpu...I haven't gamed in many years, but am a huge GTA fan, so GTA V is a definite. I'm looking for a great 1080 experience, no 4k or 1440 or VR in my future. I am still on the fence about the graphics card as I had initially gravitated to the RX 480. My thoughts for that are for Freesync. I know we also have Gsync but the monitors I believe come at higher cost. Are either of those two technologies even worth my consideration? I would like to get into 144Hz monitor if my build warrants this refresh rate. Any comments or suggestions are welcome. Thanks. PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant

Thanks for the reply. I had looked at that cooler(H5)as well the H7. Just thinking of clearance for the ram, that's the only reason I picked the shorter looking corsair over the Gskill....Is the Asus Z170 a black and white or is that silver/gray? I was going for as much black as possible, but silver and black is good also. I plan to deck out the case in purple lighting.
