How good is this setup?

I am going to buy a Custom PC with these specs:

Intel Core i7-8700

16GB Corsair VENGANCE DDR4 3200MHz (RAM)

6GB Nvidia Geforce Gtx 1060 

 

Additional Info:

Motherboard- ASUS Prime Z370-P: ATX LGA 1151

HDD- 2TB Seagate Barracuda SATA-III 6gb/s 7200RPM

SSD- 128GB M.2 2280 SATA 6Gb/s

Power Supply- Corsair 450W VS Series

Processor Cooling- CoolerMaster Hyper 212X

 

Could anyone tell me if this setup would get: (60+ Frames on GTA 5 Ulta/High Settings 1080p) and (60-100+ Frames on Fortnite Epic/High Settings 1080p)

(Also I'm pretty sure its all compatible but if anyone spots anything please let me know since I am pretty new to PC Gaming) 

 

Any replies would be appreciated.

Many Thanks

Since I am buying it from a custom pc website where they build it for you the only other power supply they offer is: Corsair 550W TXm Series.

Could you also recommend a different CPU to go with that GPU if it is too much of an overkill.

The SSD is unbranded for some reason however the closest branded one to it (which I am available to getting as it is only a few pounds more) is the: 120GB Kingston SSDNow

That Corsair TX line-up PSU will do fine. Also kingston SSDs are quite good. I'd pick the Kingston one over the one they've listed on their site without a brand name.
