Well, the gpu is the weakest link as far as anything is concerned. It will play LoL and stream movies and other desktop tasks with no real issue.
Not knowing what you were upgrading from it's hard to know if you would really see an appreciable improvement in performance, but at least it will have hardware able to run more modern technology.

yea the gpu is gonna be the weak link now , but i think its enough for lol and movies furthermore the budget its already stretched.
Moreover he is gonna upgrade from a from an old intel dual core from around 2015 and 8g dd3 ram, 120g ssd . 500g hard drive and a 500w psu (unknown chinese brand. So i believe he gonna see/feel a huge improvement with the new setup.
ps. he have a 24inch 1080p 60hz monitor.
