New build - feedback and wisdom sought

Hi - wondered what feedback the more (or less) experienced minds out could give this list

Aiming at a rig for the kids to play FIFA and whatever they graduate to later, and for me to use for Zwift/Tacx cycling training.

What is the wisdom these days? Spec to upgrade or accept that by the time one upgrades, everything is out of date and needs a complete overhaul? I tend to the latter but wondered what you think?

get the 6400 instead, as turbo boost to 3.2 is sufficient, and depending on ur MOBO, BCLK is still possible, Get the 1060 6GB instead, http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/product/9q4NnQ/evga-power-supply-220g20650y1 http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/product/j7PzK8/evga-power-supply-110b20850v3 These two power supplies are also much better drop the fans if you dont need em

Thanks Mariomash, will look up those PSUs.

Good point about the CPU.

Do you tend towards incremental upgrade vs complete replacement periodically for your PCs?

Technology changes so fast it depends on if ihave the budget or not, I would reuse the case and PSU usually, since they PSU's i do get are good and cause why not keep the case
