would you consider used parts,  your budget is pretty low... may be around $700?

target resolution...?

you should look into used parts, otherwise for new parts you will end up with quite a low powered system

I may have to go over 450 CAD, but I think that I can build a computer that can game now and take some upgrades later, he is not going to have a ton of room for his games though.

When he can I would recommend he picks up an RX570 or better, 8GB more of RAM, and an HDD, but this should hold him over for the moment.

I mean it's CAD but still, having to go to a shitty PSU and single stick of (gag) 2400 ram is painful.

Don't forget that evil Rosewill case, a lack of a mass storage drive, and a MOBO with only single channel memory.... At least I managed to still secure somewhat of an upgrade path....

any suggestions for a budget monitor?

monitors are pretty standard price / inch for popular brands, pick any suitable size(eg 24") with freesync for any cheapest branded model
