No, it's not very good.

We can't help you without a budget and currency to work with.
We also need to know what exactly you plan on doing with this system? What games will you be playing and what else will you use the system for, if anything?
What monitor(s) will you be using with the system?
Will you be overclocking?

Also what CX750 have you got? Is it a green label CX750 or one of the newer black/white label CX750s?

I have the Green Label CX750,
The currency i am using is GBP, also as i said in the title, i have about 600-700 budget, The monitor is something i will be buying separately sometime later so some suggestions on that would be nice as well.
I am also looking to be overclocking, and for the games i would be playing it would be Witcher 3/CS:GO/Battlefield 1/ PUBG.

So what's the budget for monitor? You can't build a system and not have a monitor to run it on, so what display were you expecting to use with the system?

Are you only gaming?

That PSU is shit, can you return it for a refund? If so, you absolutely should.

The budget for the monitor will be around 150-200$,
im mostly gaming yeah, and other simple tasks on pc so nothing flashy.

The PSU is one i got from a previous build, so i would rather to use this one, but i could try to resell this one too.

Also right now i use a TV to use my PC and i will use it like this until i can afford the other one.

Edit: not 150-200$, its GBP

Something like this;
[ Register or Signin to view external links. ] / [ Register or Signin to view external links. ]

CPU: [ Register or Signin to view external links. ] (£138.64 @ Alza)
CPU Cooler: [ Register or Signin to view external links. ] (£34.99 @ Overclockers.co.uk)
Motherboard: [ Register or Signin to view external links. ] (£123.74 @ Alza)
Memory: [ Register or Signin to view external links. ] (£117.05 @ Amazon UK)
Storage: [ Register or Signin to view external links. ] (£79.97 @ Amazon UK)
Video Card: [ Register or Signin to view external links. ] (£202.87 @ Amazon UK)
Case: [ Register or Signin to view external links. ] (£79.57 @ More Computers)
Monitor: [ Register or Signin to view external links. ] (£149.50 @ Aria PC)
Total: £926.33

Wait for Coffee Lake though(4 days away) and get an i3-8350k or i5-8600k with a Z370 motherboard. i3-8350k will essentially be a 7600k and the 8600k will have 6 cores. Maybe grab a used GTX 970 or GTX 980 to save some money and get comparable performance to the 6GB 1060. You can re-use the PSU but its the first thing I'd upgrade. Oh, and get the Phanteks Eclipse P300 Instead of the P400S to save £25. CCL and Overclockers have the P300 in stock for £54.95 but it's not on PCPP yet.

Thanks for your suggestions, you're right it looks much better now and the price range is almost the same.
Though if u mind explaining, what is wrong with the other case? i think i liked it more, price wise and appearance wise

Eclipse P300 is a bit better quality than MasterBox Lite 5, has a tempered glass window instead of acrylic which will scratched up probably before you've finished building the system, and has some RGB lighting.
