I've never heard of that ACE psu; do not get it. It looks like hot garbage.

Why are you purchasing a new Z170 + i5-6600K?? That's been superseded by 3 generations now AND you can use your same DDR4 RAM. But, I would suggest using dual-channel RAM and that means getting 2 sticks that are the same.

Can you not purchase an 8th-gen i5-8400, 8500, 8600, or 8600K + a Z370 motherboard? That would be hugely better than the 6th-gen i5-6600K.

*PS: SSDs are nearly a must have for a comfortably speedy system.

**Also, what country are you in and where are you purchasing these parts?

Agree with previous post. Get the new platform. You can still reuse your old RAM. Instead of unknown brand PSU, get a PSU from a reputable brand, 600W will do even if you were to overclock your CPU

My budget at first for the upgrades were £500, later increased to £650. I've already got the CPU, 1060 and Motherboard is being delivered so I can't change that out, however I can look into that for a later upgrade next year possibly as I am trying to create a beast rig. I'm getting these parts in the UK mainly from Ebuyer; apart from the PSU, I had the PSU from a prebuilt PC I had a year ago. I tested the PSU with my Current system and checked the Temperature from BIOS, etc. And the CPU was running fine at 25 Degrees Celsius with only one fan. But if i needed to i can wait for a bit more money and get a Corsair.

What I meant was if it would work fine as a system, sorry if it caused confusion.
