How much should I spend for a 1080p 60fps gaming pc build?

I am looking at building a new gaming pc. I want it to be able to run all/most games at 1080p at 60fps or higher on high or almost maxxed out settings. I put together a build but I feel like this is a little overkill for the performance I want. Should I go with this now as future compatibility or just get a cheaper build and upgrade later? How much would you recommend spending on this pc?

  1. Looks a good match, wouldn't say it's overkill at all
  2. Ok thanks, are there any changes you would recommend?

    It is a good build, purely for the aspect of price/performance ratio here a build that also runs 1080p@60fps at high/ultra settings without problems (Without all the extra's such as OS and case fans added).
