Any Suggestions on How to Improve my Build?

I'm planning to buy all these parts soon, so are there any changes you would make to improve the performance and longevity of the build?

Additional notes and questions:

  1. Some of the games that I plan on playing are Verdun, Rising Storm 2, Squad, Insurgency, Fallout 4, Arma 3, Grand Theft Auto 5, Dishonored 2, Skyrim with mods, Witcher 3, Rust, and Garry's Mod.

  2. Should I choose the RX 480 4gb over the GTX 1060 3gb?

  3. Any recommendations on a decent keyboard and mouse under or around $30?

  4. Things I should know about before buying and building the PC?

  5. Should I wait until Cyber Monday to buy my parts or November 15 (My birthday)?

Thanks!

Get the Corsair cx450m and ditch that optical drive.

Then get a 1060 6GB

I need the optical drive to install windows.

You can install windows from a USB stick

On the day you posted this, newegg has a $30 mail-in rebate, making an XFX RX 480 8gb the same price as your 1060. Might want to check that out :)
