Maximum is 600$. No AMD products, please. Friend of mine doesn't like them. There is also no plan to overclock, and I'd like to keep the current RAM and GPU. Thanks.

You can buy 16gb of ram with that amount. Also motherboard only has two memory slots so it would be a bad idea to fill both slots with 8gb of ram.

55 bucks for a 120gb ssd is insane.. Get the CXM450 which is also cheaper and a great PSU for the money.

16gb is overkill and unnecessary for gaming. 8 is enough, and I have already said I was keeping the RAM how it is. My friend is only going to game, and it's not likely he'll be playing the extremely RAM hungry games or running programs like Autodesk and Photoshop.

Nevertheless, thank you for suggestion!

and I have already said I was keeping the RAM

You can do whatever you want.... It is your friends money... Take in consideration that ram higher than 2133 will be downclocked if you use a non Z170 motherboard so its a waste of money to get 3000 ram. You never know if you are going to need more ram in the future, so filling both slots with 8gb is kind of XXXXXXX. But like I said its not my money that is going to be wasted so do as you please.

You're welcome! :)

I know you wanted to keep the Ram but unless you get a Z170 then there aint no point and the 1060 is a better bet.
