1-Change the PSU, its abysmal actually:

2- Get the G4560 and the RX 470 or the 1050Ti if you can't afford the rx 470. The i3 7100 doesn't offer the best value here.

3- Make sure that this board is updated for kaby lake CPUs (7000 series) by asking the retailer, if it isn't look for one that is.

1. Get better PSU

2. Why not Pentium G4560 for almost half the price of i3 7100 while only sacrificing 200MHz clock speed?

3. Get better GPU like 1050TI or RX 470/570 or RX 480/580

i3 7100 doesn't offer the best value no matter you will upgrade it in the future or not. It's neither as cheap and cheerful as the G4560 or a quad core like the i5. In fact, you should wait for Ryzen 3 which gives more performance with less or similar money. If you want to stick with Intel though, use the previous generation, namely G4400. Slightly worse than G4560 in performance, a bit cheaper.

Motherboard is ok for a budget build, as long as an intel cpu is used. Both skylake and kaby lake work on it. BTW there seems to be two versions of the Gigabyte-GA-H110M-S2, so make sure yours support DDR4 by looking at the spec sheet or the features list on the box.

An expensive RX460 like this is not recommended. If you have the money go for an RX 470 which has much better value. If you don't, go for a 2GB RX 460 that is cheap. RX 550 2GB can also be considered if its performance is good enough for you. Just search for reviews in the internet.

RAM is fine

Check this link for PSU. Better get PSU tier 4 or above. Your Corsair VS is at tier 6 BTW

HDD is fine.

1. Better PSU so you don't lose your build to fire. 

2. I'd get a better GPU. I have a GTX 1050 Ti , and I won the silicon lottery and overclocked it to 1.8 GHz. Or go with the 470.

Prices depends on where you live though, so it's hard to specify which manufacturer's card is the best value to you.
