I'm going for a simple build with some power to it, as well as a basic white red black color scheme. Any opinions would be appreciated https://pcpartpicker.com/user/carrotstherabbi/saved/tQDFt6

The 6600K is a bad buy for that price, a 2600 will offer similar singe-core performance and can be paired with a decent overclocking mobo for cheaper:

Added a better CPU cooler, and an SSD. Case was changed just because it was a bit cheaper and still a good unit.

Thank you so much, although I'm sure he's not experienced enough to overclock. Would that make too much of a difference?

Could give you a few extra fps depending on the game. The 2600 isn't ideal for 144Hz gaming, but the ideal is a fair bit more expensive.
