It's a decent kit. My only issue with it is the pump again.
If you're trying to save money and don't plan on watercooling anything other than CPU later on, I'd just go with an AIO unit. I'd go with a Corsair H80i, or something similar. It would offer similar temps as the kit you linked, and completely maintenance free, other than blowing dust out of the radiator every once in a while.

I would try that before spending the money on a custom loop. If you really want to build a custom loop, I'd recommend a new case that can fit more than just a single 120mm radiator before anything else

The NXZT Phantom and Switch get a lot of good publicity here. Fractal Design is gaining popularity as well, but can be a little pricey. The Corsair cases are really nice, I have a 700D now a love it. Coolermaster's HAF line, specifically the 922, 932, and HAF X, are all pretty good watercooling cases.

That is another option. If you do, that would eliminate the need for a new case. Then a good 240 radiator with good fans would give you better temps than the h60 does. Depending on how much space you would have, an EX240 with push-pull fans would be a good option.

It might require some modding, but I think it would be easier to work with than your current case
