Your best option is to buy a refurbished desktop, and stick a 1050TI in it

Imperious nailed it saying buy a refurbished PC and put a 1050ti or a 1060 if you can afford it. tight budget. good luck!

1060 will need an external power cable (which means he’ll have to fork out some more for a tower type desktop)

True!

Try this, 17 dollars over budget but it will work The CPU cooler is included with the ryzen cpu, and this is overall a decent build if you don’t plan on streaming https://pcpartpicker.com/list/fvPGYT

Canada, not USA.

Wrong currency.

The HDD is only 500GB, you can get 1TB for only a few dolalrs more.

You would be much much better off with a SSD instead of a extra 8GB of RAM./

He's located in CAN, not USA

(this affects pricing and part availability)
