There's so much stuff wrong in here...

 

First of all Kaby Lake is end of life... and it is one of the worse value generations of Intel... the i5 7600K is currently an i3.

 

Not only that you would be getting an unlocked i5 which always is bad value even overclocked, but with a motherboard that doesn't allow overclock what makes it even worse.

 

DDR4 2400mhz is actually UNDER the current specified 2666mhz memory frequency by Intel which means lower performance.

 

212 Evo is a very old cooler that has already been refreshed a couple of times, current version is the 212X... you really shouldn't go for it if you plan overclocking either.

 

Super low end PSU too and that is one over priced 1060... You can buy a 1070 Ti for that pricing.

What monitor resolution are you looking to run at? 

 

Are you intending to overclock or not? 

 

Personally I think overclocking isn’t necessary anymore, unless it’s part of the hobby for you. Turbo boost does a good job of it for those who just want some extra power.

 

If 1080p I would recommend a rig around an i5 8400 or i5 8600 if you can stretch to it.

 

Unless you already have a G-Sync monior I recommend an RX 580 as it’s better value for money.

 

You also need a different motherboard and to decide if you want ATX or Micro-ATX. Yes you can put a Micro-ATX board in an ATX case but it’s a bit of a waste as sometimes the smaller cases are cheaper.

i5 8600 - RX580 - Fractal Nano S - 1080p 144Hz

Overclocking does cost extra money as you need a more expensive motherboard, cooler, CPU and PSU. You can save money on all these parts if you stick to a non-k part.

 

The ideal gaming CPU at the moment is the i5 8400, spec up from that based on what you can afford.

MoBo is harder to recommend as you need to make sure you have the correct number of fan headers, SATA connectors and other features like M.2 connector and wife/Bluetooth module.

 

I went for for H370 for my i5 8600 but if you need less USB and SATA (I could have done with less in the end) then the B360 might be best. It’s hard to recommend a non-Z board as it comes down to what you need. 

 

I suggest comparing around and finding one on budget that “feels” right.
