    If it's within your budget, you'd do better with a 6GB version of the GTX 1060. Compared to the 3GB version, the 6GB card has more shaders (cuda cores) and more texture units and is around 10% faster.

    Xigmatek is not a good brand of power supplies. Some reviews say they have high levels of noise and ripple on the various voltage rails, which means a slow death for your hardware. If it's the model with two +12V rails, don't buy it. For gaming performance, a single +12V rail is a far better choice. Look at Antec, Corsair, EVGA, Enermax, SeaSonic, Silverstone or XFX to name a few, they have much better units.

    1) Don't forget you'll also need an operating system - for a gaming rig, that's most likely going to be Windows 10

    2) also don't forget that you'll need, at the very least, a keyboard and a mouse

    3) for a pure gaming rig, dump that HDD and get a bigger (at least 512 GB) SSD. That 120 gig SSD will basically just hold your OS, and you'll probably want to have your games run from the SSD. Plus, it's a major PITA to get games to install anywhere else but the default directory, which is on the OS disk.
