Is this a good build for a friend

Depends on what your friend will be doing with it. Other than that, it's a pretty good system.

 

No reason to get a GT 1030 alongside the 2200G, 2200G is about on par with the 1030 as it is.

I would get rid of both and go for a 2400G instead.

Find some higher speed RAM (3000ish). Also I would find a different power supply I don't think that one is of great quality. I would look to get a greymarket windows key in order to get a better graphics card, as at that point I think you should just use Vega 3 and save up for a better GPU. Don't get a 1030.

No

You want an R3 2200G PC with 3000mhz RAM, and the rest of the budget saved for a future RX 570 upgrade, it doesn't need a dedicated GPU
 

and it should probably have a better monitor

*actually it can fit an RX 570 in it already just cheap out on the mouse/keyboard for now

CX450M is a good unit.

Everything except the GPU, the R3 2200G has integrated graphics and is the same for gaming as a GT 1030, save up and upgrade the GPU down the road.

Drop GPU, and use that money to upgrade to 2400g.  2933mhz RAM at minimum as well.

 

Similar price and game performance but ~50% stronger CPU to better utilize any future GPU that gets added to the system.

Pointless to get a 2400G, the 2200G is already fine for 60hz gaming, and Ryzen 3000 MIGHT launch with a $99 6 core 12 thread CPU next year

At which point you are out $100 anyway.

 

4c8t will give better frametimes in newer games, there are already games on the market (that are mainstream) that have smoothness problems on 4c4t CPUs.

If you were going to spend more money on a CPU you'd want to get an R5 1600 or R5 2600, the 2400G is priced far too high, if it were like $125 it would make more sense.

The R5 1400 is in that price range now

That's not to mention that Ryzen 3000 should be better for gaming, even if it isn't hitting 5ghz

R5 1400 price has been all over the place because of no supply.  Ive seen it swinging between ~$130 and ~$160.
