Hey guys, i'm helping a friend out with building a 1k (USD) gaming desktop.
I wanted to ask for further advise from you guys and see if this is a good/bad build and if I need to make some changes.

Note: I'm not worried about computer peripherals but rather just the build itself.

Friend's build:
CPU: Intel Core i7-9700K Octa-Core 3.6 GHz Desktop CPU - https://www.ebay.com/itm/Intel-Core-i7-9700K-Octa-Core-3-6-GHz-Desktop-CPU/113743547399?epid=10025613064&hash=item1a7ba4cc07:g:jT0AAOSwxDBc1Pfi

GPU: EVGA GeForce RTX 2060 - https://www.ebay.com/itm/EVGA-GeForce-RTX-2060-GAMING-6GB-GDDR6-HDB-Fan-06G-P4-2060-KR/264317908303?epid=12029381592&hash=item3d8a93354f:g:RnsAAOSwuHdcbF0y

Mother Board: Asus ROG STRIX B360-G - https://www.ebay.com/itm/Asus-ROG-STRIX-B360-G-GAMING-Motherboard-CPU-i3-i5-i7-LGA1151-Intel-DDR4-HDMI/254215810392?epid=20018013882&hash=item3b30716d58:g:ZNQAAOSwRdta0IoC

RAM: Micron 16GB x2 - (No link - store bought Taiwan Product)

SSD: Micron 480G - https://24h.pchome.com.tw/prod/DRAH7G-A9009CV57

POWER: Cooling Master 550w - https://www.ebay.com/itm/Cooler-Master-V550-PSU-Fully-Modular-80-Plus-Gold-550W/264298327254?epid=1142162421&hash=item3d89686cd6:g:rAEAAOSwOtFcwhuv

Case: Cooling Master N400 - https://www.ebay.com/itm/Cooler-Master-N400-N-series-Mid-Tower-Computer-Case-With-Fully-Meshed-Front/232844629774?epid=1618888870&hash=item36369f170e:g:RbgAAOSwB0BbRnT9


I have little knowledge about build balance and pricing.
I wonder if this build is fine or if it needed some rework.
I'm also open to this other 1k build (minus the peripherals) if it has more balance:

Please tell me what you guys think!
Should I switch to tech buyers build, change up the current one, or just let it be?

Thanks for the help!

Non-overclocking motherboard paired with an overclocking CPU. No CPU cooler listed.

I can't comment on the memory with no model listed. You need DDR4 for this build. With the chosen processor, something like 3000Mhz or 3200Mhz would be appropriate.

The alternative build has less performance overall, most due to the slightly slower GPU. The CPU and GPU are certainly more budget friendly though.

If gaming is the goal, you do want to spend less on the CPU (Intel) and more on the GPU. Something like an i5-8600k/R5-2600 and a RTX 2070 would produce better results.

Any reason for buying from Ebay?

Just for reference, price, and overseas shipping to Asia.

And sounds like the first build has issues, I'll stick with the alternative build.
Can I switch out the 1660 TI from the alternative build to the RTX 2060 I listed above or will that require me to upgrade the CPU and/or power supply of that alternative build?
