Will This System Work?

I'm going to build my first PC soon (hopefully) and I've been researching and looking at prices.
After making a few parts list I finally came to something which looks pretty good.

I was planning on getting the RX 480 4GB but since I'm mainly just going to play DX11 titles (Overwatch) I decided to go for the GTX 1060.
I'm using a 120 GB SSD for the moment because I'm only going to download Windows, Overwatch, Office and a few small downloads.

Another worry is that the Pentium might bottleneck the 1060. Will that happen?

Also any other tips/advice would be appreciated.
Thanks for your time.

Heyo ImBadAtThis

Yeah, that system would work fine. I've found a few things I'd change personally though:

-I'd probably go for a RX470 4GB instead of the 1060 3GB, since there's no cut downs on the 470 4G comapred to the 1060 3G and 6G. And it would also make it abit more balanced of an system.

-The PSU. I'd change it to maybe an Seasonic 520w

-Probably go for some more storage. You might have some old HDD laying around, but if not. This SSD won't last you for long. Personally I'd also go for the Intel 600p series :)

Hope this feedback is useful.
Cheers

Not sure what you mean by cut down. Can you explain?

What with that is the 1060 3G is a cut down version of the 1060 6G. The 3G model has some ROP's removed and Cuda cores disabled. It's like a 5% difference between the two cards, but I'd still say good for the 470 4G.
