Mid-to-high end gaming build. Is it any good?

Usage: 1440p gaming / work (software engineer)

Overclocking: as much as is safe and easy.

I've read up a little and here's my current plan:

CPU Intel Core i5 6600K
MOBO Asus Z170-A
RAM G.SKILL RipjawsV DDR4 2x8GB 3200MHz CL16
GPU Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1070 G1 GAMING (this one is fixed, already bought, couldn't wait because my old card died)
Case NZXT H440
Display Asus ROG Swift 27" PG279Q

Stuff carried over from my current box:
  • Samsung 850 Evo 250GB SSD
  • a few HDDs
  • Hyper 212 Evo
  • BeQuiet 500W PSU (hopefully, not sure if it's good enough)
  • SoundBlaster Audigy PCI

Is it balanced? I'll appreciate any thoughts and advice!

    That is one of the best $100 cases IMO. I recently built a gamer for someone using that case in white/black. Lots of room, well designed, plenty of cable management, good air flow, solid, clean looking and nicely lit.
