This is first desktop so he would need all esstential item eg Keyboard, mouse, monitor speakers, OS etc.

Add 329 for 144hz monitor and add 300 for mouse, keyboard and headset. Reduce ssd to 120gb purely for os, reduce hdd to 1tb. Will probably exceed 2k by abit

Important question is also at what settings on games at what targeted frame rates ?
