What monitor(s) are you using with the system?
Will you be overclocking?
What will the system be used for, just Fortnite and PUBG? Anything other than gaming?

144hz 1080 asus 24"
No overclocking
Streaming twitch but not a big deal if I can't

I was trying to use amd cpu with a Asus 350f or 370 mother board but it kept saying a bios update would be needed so rather stay with Intel if this is a problem with amd

Would like a gtx 1060 with 1tb hard drive and a 250g ssd, only need 8gb ram, prefer two 4gb sticks. Just don't know what mother board/cpu combo to use

You can use a Ryzen 5 1600 with a B350 motherboard no problem, no BIOS update necessary. That said, since you aren't overclocking and have a 144Hz 1080p monitor, an i5-8400 is your best bet anyway IMO.

For RAM, just grab a 1x8GB stick and add another of the same when RAM is cheaper or you have some spare cash. 4GB DIMMs don't make sense with Intel, just hinders future upgradability IMO. With Ryzen though, especially APUs, dual channel has a significant performance increase and is pretty much necessary. So if you were to go with Ryzen, grab 2x4GB high speed RAM, ideally 3000/3200MHz. With Intel, just grab 1x8GB of whatever's cheap.

PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant

CPU: Intel - Core i5-8400 2.8GHz 6-Core Processor ($178.90 @ OutletPC)
CPU Cooler: CRYORIG - M9i 48.4 CFM CPU Cooler ($17.89 @ OutletPC)
Motherboard: Gigabyte - B360M Micro ATX LGA1151 Motherboard ($83.14 @ Newegg)
Memory: G.Skill - Aegis 8GB (1 x 8GB) DDR4-3000 Memory ($77.99 @ Newegg)
Storage: Crucial - MX500 250GB 2.5" Solid State Drive ($74.89 @ OutletPC)
Storage: Western Digital - Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($43.85 @ OutletPC)
Case: Phanteks - ECLIPSE P400 TEMPERED GLASS ATX Mid Tower Case ($64.99 @ Amazon)
Power Supply: Corsair - CXM (2015) 450W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply ($49.89 @ OutletPC)
Total: $591.54

A new GTX 1060 will still set you back $315+, so I can't really recommend that. Especially when you can find used 980Ti's and 1070's for $350-375. You can still find used GTX 970s for ~$200, so I'd grab one of those.

Is 2.8ghz going to be fast enough to game with? I know I said I wasn't going to overclock and I believe this is a locked cpu, just want to make sure it's fast enough before I buy it

The clock speed is fine. You'll rarely see the i5 sitting at 2.8GHz if you're actually using it. You'll be between 3.6-4GHz when under load, and will just sit at 2.8GHz when idle.
