My friend wants to get into PC gaming he said his budget is roughly 600 he doesn't want to upgrade anytime soon and will be using this build for mainly gaming. i made a parts list here http://pcpartpicker.com/list/GM62kT is that a bad parts list ? I will be lending him my USB with win 8 on it he would also like a optical drive for his music cds forgot to include that if anyone can make a list that would help also

Looks like a pretty good list

You can spend less on your RAM though, H170 boards only support a maximum speed of 2133, you have 2400 it's a bit of wasted money

He plans to play mainly games I currently have a i3 and it runs games decent would getting a i5 6500 for him be worth it in the long run ?

I currently have a 950 I don't think he will care about playing on high settings he just wants a solid PC to game on

The games he wants to play are Csgo league battlefield rust h1z1 and some others those are just examples

For me decent means I can play the game without worrying about fram drops
