I doubt he'll need a powerful CPU? I mean I have a 7700k and it still runs great for modern titles. Seem usage around 50-70 and temps at 43-50c. I'd go water-cooling with the extra money if you can. This could mean your brother will play with a water-cooling loop on his CPU which makes the temps low and he can probably overclock to 4.8-5.0GHz. GPUs are a little hard to get these days, the RTX 2000 series stocks should be back soon and should be enough. I hope this could help you out.

consider going AMD.

you can try to emulate that one build Linus did just not so small. (that wierd velcase or something build)

and also consider going with 16 series nvidia.

The 10700 is mostly fine for playing at 165Hz at 1080.

 

AIO water cooling is worse at cooling than a traditional tower cooler. Unless you really like the look of water cooling there's no real point in doing it.

 

And that CPU and motherboard can't overclock and the 10700 boosts to 4.8GHz at stock anyways.

AMD is still behind on gaming. i7 smashes the R5 and R7 and the prices of a R7 are higher. 

 

Sure that I wish I could find a Nvidia card but we are out of stock for at least 2 months because of coronavirus. 

 

I'm literally only have a 5700XT on the marked even the used ones are out of stock. 

 

I never saw a GPU end that quick like the new Nvidia and AMD Gen. Never... Even the new AMD CPUs are out of stock without any news of replacing it. 

 

My country is a damn failure

The 3600 has basically the same gaming performance as the 10700 you picked. I don't know the pricing in your country, but the 3600 is usually considerably cheaper.
