Given you a great gtx 1060 and a 1440p monitor that will handle it superbly, the i5 6600k is excellent for gaming and a bit of photo editing, a reliable SSD for Windows. Of which I've given you a full version so you can upgrade the motherboard down the time if you so wish, speaking of which the motherboard comes with wifi. The case although being an itx is simple and no harder to build in its full atx counterpart but is much smaller and compact. If you want full atx so you could expand further down the line you can get a case like the NZXT S340 and replace the motherboard with a a full atx, I'd suggest the Asus z170-a if you do. Although most full atx motherboards don't come with wifi so you would have to buy a separate wifi card if you needed it.
