Hi my friend is looking to build his first PC and is trying to stick to a budget of between £900-£1000. He is looking to play a lot of new games at 1080p and 60 hertz however i'm unsure if an i5-7600k and a gtx-1060 (6GB) are overkill or not and i'm not sure if a ryzen 1600x would suit his needs better as the PC is mainly for gaming. Here is the list of parts I've chosen so far however i'm around £84 over budget so i would like some advice on what would be better suited. https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/xrHLnn Thanks in advance.

Poor PSU. Get a 550W CXM (the grey ones, the green ones are poor) Personally I'd go Ryzen. A 1060 will be fine. Lose the thermal compound. The one included is sufficient. Exchange the crappy Corsair fan for a Phanteks, Noctua or Cougar.
No SSD drive in that high end build? If build is too far out of budget might evaluate if overclock is really necessary, usually not to much to gain in real world performance.
