So I just recently built my PC exactly yesterday and now my friend wants to build one as well.
He needs everything.
Everything as in: monitor, mouse, keyboard, and the PC. His budget it $1500 USD and he said he wanted to be able to edit videos and pictures and as well play games such as "COD" he came from PS4.

Quick Form:
What is your budget and currency? $1500 USD (or cheaper)
Do you need a monitor? yes
Do you need a keyboard? yes
Do you need a mouse? yes
Do you need an operating system? yes
What will you use the PC for? Gaming, Editing videos&pictures ("games like COD" he said, but pretty sure later on he'd wanna play more demanding games as well, probably.)

You can use Win10 for free, or buy a key for <4£0 from Kinguin, G2A, or /r/microsoftsoftwareswap. Grab any cheapo <$20 keyboard for now and you can upgrade to a nice mech keyboard when you have a spare $100 or so. SLI support so you could add a 2nd GTX 1070 at any point if you wanted. Nice 1440p monitor which you should easily be able to OC between 96-120Hz.
Cheaper alternative mouse if you want.
Oh, and I'd probably spend a little extra for this case now;
but the P400 is still a great option.
