I will be using it mostly for gaming for games like league, and Modded Skyrim. It seems a little overkill for my needs so I just wanted to get your opinion.

So I know a guy and can buy this computer for $1200:

I dont get what you mean by that? Does someone already have this computer and you are buying it from him?

FIRST it would be crazy to spend that much money on an itx motherboard when you can save over 80 bucks on a very good one.

Second ITX motherboards only have 2 memory slots so 4 memory DIMMS will NOT fit (SO no way this can even be possible)

Why an i7 when the i5 would be fine..

Spending so much on wrong places. The H60 is not worth it and I would get a cheaper and better case. This amount of money and only a GTX 1060..

Yes the computer is already build.

I know the motherboard is really expensive

I know its actually 2 16gb sticks, but couldn't find it on pcpartpicker.

It only has a 1060 which was why I was wondering.

Its not a bad computer but it just has very expensive parts which for your use would just be a waste of money. You could build something way much cheaper. There is no way you will take advantage of 32gb of ram and that motherboard.

A 1060 is way overkill for league. You can run league on pretty much anything. Modded Skyrim on the otherhand...depends on what kind of mods you'll be running. Will you be using ENBs?

What kind of fps and screen resolution are you expecting to run games at? eg: 1080p @ 60fps, 4k @ 144fps,e tc.

It's a fairly decent machine for $1200 though, I'd say you'd be getting a good deal assuming all the parts work. The motherboard is a little overpriced and 32GB of RAM is excessive. You also don't really need an i7 for what you're doing. Keep in mind you could build a modded Skyrim pc for probably $700-900. However, it's a fairly decent deal for what you're getting.

Yeah I wouldn't get it if I only played league. It is more so that I could get some new games that came out.

It would for 1080p @ 60fps.

Yeah it is a little high in my budget range so I am thinking of just building my own instead.

Yeah in that case, I'd probably turn down the offer and just build your own. That's a lot of expensive parts you probably won't be able to put to use. For certain types of things this kind of build could be good, but for what you're doing you'd probably be better off building your own. If you're not sure how to get started I'm happy to help.

Yeah thats kind of what I decided. Thanks for the offer. I have been toying with the idea of build a computer for a while now, but haven't actually done it yet.

You're welcome, it's actually a lot easier then you probably think it is. If you can build lego sets, you can build a computer.
