What country are you in?
What will he use this PC for the most, Gaming, general web browsing, video editing???
I would start with a B450 motherboard so he can upgrade the CPU in a year or two.

Yes please list most to least use and are the 1600x and Antec PSU for your friend? if so I also agree with DMAN about getting a B450 motherboard if you are on a budget like yours the MSI B450 A-PRO is pretty good a little ugly tho.

Then you could buy a desktop
Dell Optiplex 9010 MT 480GB SSD Intel QUAD i7 vPro
i7 vpro desktop
If you read the first post you will see that he already has an AMD Ryzen 1600x CPU and a PSU that he can use in a new build.
I would definitely recommend that he uses the CPU he already has in a build constructed with a new MB, RAM, etc. versus buying an old used PC.
Buying new components that come with a warranty is much safer than buying a used PC with no warranty.

I second DMAN's build.

You can do a better cheaper system if build it yourself compared to buying oem. Oem's ~ HP, Dell etc use cheap components MOST of the time and their bios's are usually very limited compared to custom motherboards. Stay away from oem imho.

Factoring in your budget also may need to consider the operating system (est 100$) but you can get away with running Win10 for free with some restrictions.
