Yeah, upgrade all the parts :)

 

Seriously, what is it you feel is lacking?  FPS?  Resolution?   Any lag?

 

Better is a vague term.  Tell us what you play, etc.  Monitor?

The PSU is iffy. Otherwise you've got a really solid build there. What are you trying to do with it that you want more performance for?

Do you already have it and want to upgrade it, or are you considering buying those parts? In the second case, I would recommend you change the CPU cooler, GPU, motherboard, RAM, SSD, PSU and case

I think the hoomans put their builds here?

Why do you hoomans give your builds a name? Here's my build, which I shall call "Do as I Say, Not As I Do" (seriously, don't get this build)

Spoiler

Ryzen 1500X @3,925 GHz

Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo + 2x ML120

MSI B350 Tomahawk Arctic

120GB Kingston SSD

500GB WD Blue

Cooler Master Elite 430

Seasonic Prime Titanium 650W

Logitech G710 with Kailh Box Jade

HyperX Cloud

And my laptop, which I shall call "If It's Stupid But It Works" (It can actually play CS:GO at 50 FPS, and Civ V at 25 FPS)

Spoiler

Lenovo Thinkpad L460

Intel Core i3 6100U

4GB (probably) DDR4 2133 MHz

Intel HD Graphics 520 0.3-1.0 GHz

128GB Samsung MZ7LF128HCHP

Corsair M65 Pro RGB (worst mouse I've ever had)

And here would be where I would put a picture of my cat. But apparently, images are not allowed here. So take this instead (*ΦωΦ*)

I'm going for a bang for buck gaming PC, this will be my upgrade form a console which I have been using for years. I play Rainbow Six, Minecraft, and GTA V most often. Ill just be using a basic 1080p 60hertz monitor. I just want to know if this is a good starting point for a beginner PC gamer.

What you have is a fantastic starting point.  Will play 1080p/60Hz really well.  
 

When you get the funds, move up to either a higher refresh monitor or a higher resolution one.  May need to upgrade the 1660 then but for now you're set.

Bang for the buck? Isn't Corsair Vengeance LPX cheaper compared to the Vengeance RGB?

The eVGA-psu, it is of the B/BR series I assume? Atx 2.3 standard? You can get better for the money.

The 970 Evo is tlc-nand. You may consider the Intel 660p is qlc - but cheaper - 512gb for less. If you're worried about latency you might not want tlc/qlc anyways. Alternatively, use a +-250gb mlc ssd together with an 1tb+ cached tlc/qlc nvme that replaces the 2tb conventional harddisk. Or use an ssd >400gb mlc together with a conventional harddisk and use about 10-15% of the ssd as a cache for the harddisk.

There are similar cases to the NZXT H510 at about half the price (bang/buck?).
