    Changes made
    CPU: i3-6100 -> i5-6400
    CPU cooler: Hyper 212 EVO -> Intel's stock cooler
    RAM: 1x 8GB 2400 Mhz -> 2x 4GB 2133 Mhz
    PSU: EVGA SuperNOVA G2 (750W) -> Seasonic G-450 (450W)


    Reasons why
    CPU: i5-6400 is far better CPU than i3-6100, especially in games since it's quad-core and not dual-core CPU.
    comparison: http://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Intel-Core-i3-6100-vs-Intel-Core-i5-6400/3511vs3512

    CPU cooler: You don't need aftermarket CPU cooler for a CPU that you can't OC (overclock). So, i removed it. You're better to use Intel's stock cooler that comes with CPU.

    RAM: Since your MoBo has 4 RAM slots and it only supports RAM speeds of 2133 Mhz, i switched your RAM out for proper speed and also to gain dual channel over single channel.
    comparison: http://ram.userbenchmark.com/Compare/HyperX-Fury-DDR4-2133-C14-1x8GB-vs-HyperX-Fury-DDR4-2133-C14-2x4GB/3555vs3554

    PSU: 750W is overkill for your PC since max power consumption is about 235W. You'll do fine with 300W PSU but i put in 450W PSU just in case you want to upgrade your GPU at some point (e.g GTX 1060 or RX 480).

    - better CPU
    - better GPU
    - better PSU
    - no need for aftermarket cooling, the stock cooler works fine
    - better price :-)
