I thought you rather to wait for Zen 3 and budget options for Ampere GPUs if you want more 'future proofing'. Also, things would be cheaper on Zen 2 if they're out. Or, you can get it now if he's not patient enough.

 

It's fine to use HDD but I would suggest a SSD for a better performance.

Humor me, as you should do.

 

Daily drivers:

 

Acer Aspire E5-475G

Intel Core i5-7200U 2.5 GHz (Turbo 3.1 GHz) || NVIDIA GeForce 940MX 2GB

4GB Micron DDR4 + 4GB Team Group DDR4 PC19200

120 GB WD Green M.2 SATA SSD + 480 GB Pioneer APS-SL3N SATA SSD

Some old computer laying around as my HTPC

Intel Pentium Dual Core E2160 1.8GHz || (fake lol) NVIDIA GeForce GT730 2GB DDR3

Some random old motherboard. Works fine tho.

512 MB + 512 MB random DDR memory

40GB IDE HDD + 1 TB old laptop SATA HDD, got bad sector unfortunately

Linux Mint 20 Ulyana Xfce x64

Some old TCL CRT TV laying around + RCA to HDMI converter

 

Xiaomi Redmi Note 8

4GB RAM, 64GB Internal Storage

i have to build one within the price range of a PlayStation couse they dont want to spend to much on it so the budget is a bit tight and a Playstaion is around 4000 DKK or 600 DKK max a 1000 DKK 150 Dollars, i am thinking of giving the case and spend that money on a either better CPU or more Storage. but again the budget is a bit tight

Du burde helt klart tjekke brugtmarkedet. Du kan finde nogle fine, om lidt outdatede, budgetcomputere på f.eks. facebook salgsgrupper, eller i mindre grad DBA.
