inexperienced budget build help

Budget (including currency): 
wanting to keep cost low so no more than 1500 NZD as this doesn't include peripherals

Country: 

New Zealand

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: 

building for friend that just wants to be able to play most single player games and some multiply games on decent fps and graphics

Other details

this is a PC build for a friend that currently has a old laptop that runs really bad with very low fps, so need to buy keyboard and monitor too, probably 1920x1080

upgrading because playing on his laptop has become painful and unfun

I've got some knowledge on building a PC but have never done it before, here is the part list I made on PC part picker: https://nz.pcpartpicker.com/list/4kzpkJ
All parts being bought new from a trusted store near me, all components have good reviews on their website, about $26 NZD more expensive than listed on PC part picker

 

wanted to check that all the parts would work together and that im not doing anything wrong, thanks

Not bad at all, mayyybe the GPU is a bit on the weak side but going for something really better is hard on the budget 

Had to switch to Australia as NZ partpicker has a total shortage of GPU 😛 , equivalent price should be 10% higher in Kiwi dollars

7600 + 6600 + 32gb 6000c30

 

imo worth getting am5 for the upgradability cause now you wont have to replace the mobo or ram when you want to upgrade cpu and singlecore performance should be alot faster than a 5700x, you arent exactly gonna be getting a significantly better gpu even if you go am4 unless you buy used if a used market even exists over there so might aswell get a better platform
