Please Review and Recommend

I am building this PC for my brother and I want him to have a decent rig but I dont want to sink a ton of money into it. I am going to be using my Prefered Account with and want to keep the payments as low as possible while still providing him a decent gaming rig to play current games on high settings 1080P.

What I have in mind so far (please feel free to make adjustments if there are just as reliable hardware that performs as well that will save me money.)
