This will work good for 1080p gaming in general. The power supply already comes with a power cord.

You can increase the SSD capacity and still stay under budget, go for a PNY SSD with 240GB. Otherwise looks good.

Good call, hopefully it works into his build though.

perfect gaming budget build. I would go for a 480 4gb or 1060 3gb just for more performance, maybe go over budget but it would be worth it.

Some super questionable part choices.

A Z170 motherboard? That chipset is both only useful for unlocked processors, and would require a BIOS flash to be used with a G4560. It gives absolutely no benefit over a B250 board, and requires the hassle of a flash.

16GB RAM on this budget, for what purpose? 8GB is all that's necessary in a gaming build as no game will take up more than 6 or so. Unless he's streaming or using a memory-intensive application, more than half of that will sit unused.

The 1060 3G is outperformed by the RX 480 at its price point in every aspect. The extra GB of VRAM is noticeable, as AAA titles are tending to push 2-3GB nowadays. (4G vs 8G, then, is not yet noticeable.) Also, the 3G has 10% of its cores disabled, leading to lower performance across the board.

follow the advice you were given and read up on parts so that you can help the members of the site more effectively thank you
