A friend asked me to help build him a PC, but I mostly work in software, so I am a little out of my depth here. I have made a build that goes for 1300 CAD but wanted advice on A: possibly reducing the cost while keeping the ability to do what the user wants, and B: to know if there are any conflicts with the individual parts.

Approximate Purchase Date: Next couple of weeks. Black Friday if possible. I was kind of asked last minute, so I will not be surprised if this is not possible.

Budget Range: Approx. 1000 Before Rebates, Before Shipping

System Usage from Most to Least Important: gaming, surfing the internet, watching movies

Are you buying a monitor: Unknown, probably

Do you need to buy OS: Yes

Please note that if you're using an OEM license of Windows, you will need a new one when buying a new motherboard. Put an OEM in the list, but will probably require to buy a USB. Not too much difference in price.

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg.com

Location: Montreal, Quebec, Canada

Parts Preferences: None

Overclocking: Maybe

SLI or Crossfire: Maybe

Your Monitor Resolution: Unknown

Additional Comments: User wants to play Skyrim and Fallout

And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: User needs a decent PC

I'll post you the build here. Looking to know if there are any conflicts, or suggestions.

Hello!
What is the build going to be about? Editing? Gaming? That 1050ti can't do much these days, even my O/C RX 570 started sweating a lot these past few months with the new releases.

Mostly gaming. Unfortunately my instinct is to go a little higher, but I gotta cut somewhere to fit in with my buddy's budget. Think Fallout 4 and Skyrim. Given when they came out the 1050 Ti should be okay. Though it has been a while I might be wrong.

If it's going to be mostly about gaming, get a Ryzen 5 2nd/3rd gen or an i5 CPU with a less expensive motherboard and spend more money on the GPU. That i9 is very overkill for gaming. The 1050ti just isn't capable enough for gaming nowadays.
