Helping a friend build a gaming pc

Hey guys, I got some help from you a few years back building my PC, and now i've got a friend with a max budget of 1600$ looking to build a gaming pc able to run modern AAA games and be pretty future proof. He doesn't really do any content creation and he's not a snob about frame rate or super resolution, but he would prefer frame rate (Probably just 144hz). Any thoughts on where we should start?

$1600 CAD?

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

yup 1600 CAD

make sure you quote us so we can see your responses.

 

Here is a good build:

It has a solid upgrade path and great core components, left some room because I don't know if you need the monitor or not.
