Downgrade the cpu to the i5-6500. The price difference isn't really worth it. Get a GPU that has some reviews... that palit one seems a bit fishy with no reviews on amazon at all.

That does seem a bit weird...

Made a lot of changes. =-)

CPU

Went for a 6600k as for only a bit more, you gain the ability to overclock.

Cooler

I like the look of the H7, and it cools well.

Motherboard

You need a Z170 board to overclock, and this Gigabyte one looks better in my opinion.

RAM

If you're gaming, you don't need 16GB of RAM, but you could throw in 16GB of HyperX Fury RAM if you wanted to.

Case

A bit more expensive, but looks more premium and looks nicer to me.

Power Supply

Just saved a bit of money here. Still 80+ Gold. Could be swapped out for a Corsair or EVGA one if you want.

Windows : Monitor : Keyboard

You need Windows, of course. =-)
The 1070 is extremely overkill for a 1080p monitor, so I grabbed a 1440p IPS monitor instead.
Keyboard is mechanical, for a better feel and look.

Why did you downgrade to GTX 1060? You get less gaming performance now.
