A friend of mine has a very old PC, that is dying (to say the least) I've now configured a new PC for him (https://de.pcpartpicker.com/list/zTxhsZ). He wants to play games at 1080p 60fps and I want to get a second oppinion on this build. Do you guys think, that I should change something? If so, tell me what, with an explination.
Thanks for the help :-D

DDR4-3200MHz ram kit to bring the best out of the platform. Ditch that SSD and look for something like an Adata SU800 or a Samsung 970 Evo Plus. I would personally build a smaller system.

You might want to list all the games(without an etc to the end of that sentence) that your friend will play.

Furthermore, please list your current system's specs so we understand how much of an upgrade you're actually giving him.

Memory is too slow for Ryzen (could be as high as a 20 FPS difference depending on the game) & ideally you want 16gb.

No need for a aftermarket cooler and funds would be better utilized in other parts of the build.

Cheaper motherboard with good features.

Put in a better PSU.

Cheaper & better performing GPU.

Had to lower the HDD storage to fit budget but this would be a better all around build.

Changed case to fit budget, this one has good airflow for the price.

Thanks. I've followed your advice and swaped the 1050 Ti with the RX570 and I've swaped out my ram with yours.
