Okay, so I recreated all of the parts that you listed, on this PcPartPicker list:

https://pcpartpicker.com/list/LjNYf8

I'd say this system is a solid low mid-tier gaming system, it should be able to meet minimum requirements for over 99% of games, and it should be able to meet the recommended requirements for 97% of games. The system costs about $725 and has a power consumption requirement of 343W. The most expensive and powerful thing on that system is the RX 480 8GB graphics card. It's even slightly overkill for the rest of the system, but that's okay, at least you won't have to worry about your graphics card not being powerful enough for future games.

I'm going to suggest a few improvements in this next list:

https://pcpartpicker.com/list/vKKsM8

The only thing I've changed in the list is I have suggested that you go from 500W 80+ PSU to a 500W 80+ Bronze PSU. The Bronze certification means that it's a little more power efficient than a standard 80+ PSU, and the price is only a few dollars more. I then also suggest that instead of a 500GB HDD, you get yourself a 1TB Hybrid Drive (which is a combination of an SSD and a HDD, at the same time). The Hybrid drive will be a little faster than a standard HDD, but at the same time it won't be as fast has a full SSD, it'll be somewhere between an SSD and an HDD. Overall, the price will only go up from $725 to $750.

Hard drive is an old design, obsolete. I would not use it unless you already have it.
CPU bottlenecking, that is, the CPU brings down the frames per second for most games.
I would never use an RX 480 powerful card with an FM2+ motherboard, whose top CPU is an Athlon x4 860K or 880K
That's really a minimum power supply for the system. It is EVGA's cheap versions made by HEC, who uses cheaper parts.

Cheap old design motherboard does not support the computer case usb 3.0 in front.
I don't like it, and I am unsure about fit in that computer case but looks ok.

I prefer the gtx 1060 6gb over the rx 480 8gb, because you already have the cpu dragging you down, and a motherboard not supporting sli.

I would scrap the list and start again. Someone forgot to tell you that ALL the parts are important, and not just the graphics card. And you don't fix a CPU by using a lot of ram.

Overwatch is very cpu intensive.

The RX 480 is normally shown with i7-6700K
153fps average on ultra with minimum 136fps as matching an R9 390X

But, your cpu drags it down badly
http://www.techspot.com/review/1180-over…
239>66 and 195>44
(66/238) x 153 = 42fps average expected and (44/195) x 136 = 31fps minimum on ultra.
Start with i3-6100 and although not up to i5, you double your results and do very well in most games.
If you want to focus gaming on Overwatch only, and not all other games, start in the FX series.

I think your design choice is no good for Overwatch.

Overwatch 86fps/ 80 minimum with i7-6700K and RX-460 4GB
140/240 x 86 = 50 fps average and 78/195 x 80 = 32fps minimum
At this level, it outperforms your choices and can be modified, and have higher quality parts.
Good CPU, motherboard, ram, an SSD, a full TB HDD, a nice computer case, a good Seasonic power supply, the DVDRW to install WIndows, and a retail Windows copy rather than download and license code.

You can modify/edit to your choices from this stable list.

Adrian:
The PSU is just the bare minimum to run the RX480 card, get a better PSU
Micheal Cullis:
It's average. You should go to 8GB RAM and go for a 250GB SSD instead. Also go for a better CPU and a higher wattage PSU
