PC For Dad $800

This would be a better gaming experience:

 

 

The 9400F outperforms the 2600 by a decent margin across the board in gaming loads, the 1660 performs much better than the 1060 for only a few $ more. The tower is much better looking for less with good airflow. I saved some cash on the PSU and the RAM as well.

I'm trying to build a PC for my dad, he plays EQ2 (Everquest 2), TF2, maybe Division 1/2, and other games.

 

Heres what I have so far.

Thoughts?

I'd move up to a GTX1660 for the same price for more performance, or an RX580 for same performance and less price.

 

No offense, but if I was your dad I'd be upset about the case.   That's not a pretty case at all, sorry.

 

Otherwise I like the build.

Mainly @LukeSavenije list with a few changes, slightly worse cpu but vega 64 is leagues ahead of the 1060.

I like how when an op posts a build it's just an opportunity for everyone else to post their own 800$ build lists they already have preassembled in notepad. lol

The case I thought wouldn't be too bad of a choice because this is a budget build, and really he didn't specify superbly on TG, RGB and the sorts. I was just trying to make something up that would look decent and would perform well. I like this build, and kind of forgot about the i5-9400F.
