When you find budget for your PC in the future, one-by-one; buy an at least 250 gb of SATA3 ssd, then a new CPU with at least 8 cores, then same model of 8 gb RAM, then a new PSU not less than 600W and finally a new GPU.
Don't waste money on a tiny 250GB ssd. That is useless if you actually want to put games on it. 500GB is bare minimum, and even that is not good. Save up $300 and get a 1TB, then you can put some games on it. Small ssd's are only good for putting the OS on and nothing else.
And 8 core cpu will be slower for 99% of games, especially ATS which only uses a single core. A fast intel quad core will run this game far better than an 8 core cpu that has a lower ipc and lower clock speed.
Not bad on the PC, but I'd consider maybe squeezing some extra RAM if possible to 16 GB. If not, 8 GB will get you by for the time being.
The current GPU you chose is on the lower spectrum of the 1060's. It'll get by for sure though. Or, you can wait and see how the Vega 56 pans out. Would push the budget a bit up, but if what I'm reading about it hold, AMD could once again be viable for once in the GPU area. (they were not so hot for a few years when they took over GPU's from ATI and drivers went to complete and utter *bleep*)
My last bit would be to consider going for at least a WD Black or Seagate equivalent. The Blue's are nice and all, but I've so far never had a WD Black crap out on me yet. Heck, I still have an old 10 year old WD Green still running. (been wanting to replace it though, it is my only 5400 RPM drive sitting in my system)
