I know you only want the tower, but I'm asking. if your monitor is 60Hz then it's fine. But who knows,maybe you have a hand-me-down or something like that with a 120 refresh rate?

This is about the best I can do. Someone else can probably make a list to fit your budget better than I did.

Buy used. 100%. You'll get a much better system that way.

This is the best I could do new. He really needs a little more budget to get a decent system.

I picked the RX 560 because it can play games at medium settings, dropping lower pretty much necessitates low settings.

You need to make sure the motherboard has been updated for the G4560.

Doesn't really matter though because he doens't have the budget to drive a 120hz monitor ;)
