    At this price point there is no need for more than 8 gigs of ram or an ssd. Why so much on a 1080p TN monitor? An I3 would be better for gaming. and that GPU is just no.

    I strongly advise not to buy any of these parts ! Look around for budget builds in that price range at pcpartpicker , u'll get a better ideea of what u can and cn't buy !! here's an exemple of a 1000$ build I just made http://pcpartpicker.com/p/CnZ3qs u can change the monitor if u'd like I just put something decent with freesync as most games will run from 65 to 85 fps range depending on your high to ultra setting with the R9 390 or this build with a R9 380 and a keyboard , mouse and headset http://pcpartpicker.com/p/2tXtwP

    or a skylake i5 6400 (the equivalent for the Haswell i5 4460 ) with a cheaper H110 board ! and u can get an AOC 21.5" Monitor 1 ms 75hz w/ freesync to go with the r9 380 (best budget Gpu btw) or he can stick with that AOC 27" monitor if he wants to and there's no need for an SSD here frankly

    Actually the i5 6500 is the equivalent due to the much higher clock.
