I'm building my first PC and I was double checking if these are compatible and good for each other. If You Suggest a change please tell me. Sorry I'm new to the forum thing. All of these are going to be ordered off Amazon too.

CPU: Intel Core i5 6600K 3.50 GHz Quad Core Skylake Desktop Processor, Socket LGA 1151, 6MB Cache

CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler

Case: NZXT S340 Mid Tower Case CA-S340W-B1

Memory: Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-2133 Memory

Motherboard: ASUS Z170-A ATX DDR4

Storage: Samsung 850 EVO-Series 500GB 2.5" Solid State Drive

Video Card: MSI GeForce GTX 1060 6GB 6GB GAMING X Video Card

Power Supply: EVGA SuperNOVA NEX 650W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply

Case Fan: Corsair Air Series AF140 Quiet Edition 67.8 CFM 140mm Fan

So I have questions. Will an external usb optical drive work for downloading windows 10. Will I be fine with just using a 500 gig SSD for Storage?

Will an external usb optical drive work for downloading windows 10?

Yep, it should work just fine. You can also put it onto a USB drive and install it that way

Will I be fine with just using a 500 gig SSD for memory?

I believe you mean for storage. It really depends on the person, for me about 1 TB plus 250 is a good number, my friends and I are doing YouTube (for the kick of it) and I prefer to have decent quality videos that take up about 2 gigs per 20 mins.

The parts look good (other than a lack of a mobo).

Things we need to know: budget, what it's being used for, are you going to OC, and what country

Get a different PSU man. (G2, Corsair RMx)

500GB will be good for a while. If you find out you need more, just add an HDD in later.

Also if you want to really overclock look into a different cooler (Scythe Fuma)

I'd suggest a Sapphire R9 Fury over the 1060 right now. Much better card for not much more money. Will also agree with choosing a different PSU

I prefer choosing Nvidia because of the certain game abilities it offers as for the PSU, what do you suggest?

EVGA G2, GS, P2, Corsair RMx

I'm a pretty big Nvidia fan myself, but for the price there isn't any comparison at all between the two cards
