Switch your CPU for an AMD Ryzen 5. KabyLake isn't worth it.

CPU- Cheaper, and offers plenty of power for 60Hz gaming.

RAM- Faster RAM helps a fair bit with Ryzen CPU's

SSD- Will generally improve system responsiveness

HDD- A bit newer and faster

Video Card- GTX 1060's and equivalent cards are absurdly overpriced and hard to find right now. A 1050 Ti offers decent performance for gaming, and is much more reasonably priced

Case- A bit better quality

PSU- The S12II series is pretty old, a CXM is a better choice now

OP didn't mention overclocking, so it wasn't taken into consideration.

I highly suggest you spend a little more and go with a case from a reputable brand like NZXT or Fractal design. These cheaper ones will have very undefined construction that can make building and upgrading quite difficult and any leftover sharp edges could cut you as well. Otherwise it's a great selection.

Note: you have an overclockable cpu but not a z270/z170 motherboard which means you're paying more for a feature you can't use.
