I am wanting to build my first PC and I just wanted some advice on this part list. I want to know if it looks like it will be able to run some games (not too much) and if I should be aware of anything complicated while building. Thanks.
Looks like a good entry level pc for gaming. There is a couple things I would change if you’re fine with it.
I might switch the cpu to an intel i5 8400 because intel has more powerful cores than amd so it should act the same for a cheaper price. (You would have to switch you motherboard to)
I would switch the 1050ti you have picked out to an Asus ROG Strix 1050ti because it’s only like a dollar more and it should look nicer and give cooler temps.
Other than that I like how you’re going with two 4gb sticks instead of one 8gb because of dual channels.
Should run any 1080p game (medium-ish) setting 60fps
What's your max. budget for that build?
Anyway, because i don't have much time, i would do the below.
Same amount of money and faster.

And you can push it even further with a RX 580 8GB GPU solution.
Good Build but if you have some more bucks to invest then get RX580 instead of 1050 ti. Then your build will able to handle almost all AAA title at 1080p resolution at medium to high setting with good Framerate
I would switch you ram to something more than DDR4-2133. For example, you can use DDR4-3000 memory. I would also make the upgrade from a GTX 1050 TI to a GTX 1060 like this: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/tJyxFT/evga-geforce-gtx-1060-6gb-sc-gaming-video-card-06g-p4-6163-kr. It is $50 more but the difference is huge as you get 2 more gigs of VRAM and you get way higher clock speeds than the 1050TI.
