Good Build? Opinion

Hi everyone I am going to help a friend build his first gaming pc and these are the parts that he wants. What do you think? Anything you would change? He mostly wants it for PS2 and Wii emulators plus now and then to play the latest games i.e. he likes Metal Gear Solid V. He was planning to get a PS4 Pro but I told him to build a PC instead. THANK!!!

  1. All the parts seem good, but the PSU is waaay overpowered. The most you need is 500W for this build.

    I realize that lol. The only reason I included it is because it is on sale: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E16817139141
    850W is 114.99

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E16817139144
    550W is 89.90

    So a $25 dollar difference. For that amount do you think it would be worth it to get the 850W or still no?

    Thank you.

    You could probably just get a i5 6600K processor and a GTX 1060 and save a couple hundred bucks but for the price of your build the above one has much better performance.

    Thank you I will tell my friend. I also think that he would be better off with an i5 6600K but we'll see what he says. Thanks again!!!
