CPU: I suggest waiting for couple of weeks or so and get Athlon X4 950 instead
Motherboard: Socket AM4 offers superior platform for upgrade (again, couple of weeks)
Memory: AM4 needs DDR4
SSD: Good SSD but not available any more
Video card: I suggest Radeon RX 480 4GB instead as GTX 1060 3GB is worse than GTX 1060 6GB
Case: OK
PSU: Much better quality available for 20 bucks more
OS: You really need Win 10 Pro?
Monitor: OK
Speakers: OK

As stated, AM4 platform is much better choice. I suggest waiting for it.
