The PSU in your post is overkill, you do not need that much, better choose camohanna build.

So far the components that you have listed are all great quality parts and you seem to be on the right track. There are a few exclusions from this list, such as the drives, cooling solutions and a computer case.
For a very quick and speedy system I would suggest an SSD for the boot-drive in combination with a larger HDD for extra storage. There are plenty of good products for both so do your research and you will be fine
If you are looking for advise on building a computer then I would highly suggest taking a look at Newegg's "How to Build a Computer" Series (lengthy but the most comprehensive videos I ever saw on the subject) and Tek Syndicates monthly gaming PC's for any budget. If you are interested I will offer the codes Newegg has given me for a discount (I buy a lot of stuff from there never with issues) on a number of products. Some of them will expire soon, but don't take it as a reason to go a impulse buy some things, but it is there if you want it.

You will be just fine on your new build.
