[SOLVED] $1,000 gaming build recommendations

Build budget should not include: monitor / windows OEM license / peripherals / taxes / shipping

Budget: $1,000 USD
Location: US
Parts from: Amazon / NewEgg / Micro Center

This build is for a friend, and I believe the build I've thought up is biased, hence my seeking advice here. Thank you in advance for your help and happy holidays.
 
I know this is slightly higher than the budget you've mentioned but I think this would be rather ideal:

Let me know what you think. Also if your friend's got a monitor, peripherals and all that, I'm guessing he's also got storage he can recycle?

A B365 board for an Intel-K processor with a good liquid cooler? Would be a waste not to overclock if going for a unlocked CPU IMO.
