I need a super budget build, but I need it to run at least 60 fps at the best settings for the price

In Canada, it just might be better to get hold of a dell optiplex 390/790/990 MT, upgrade the power supply then pick up a RX 570/580.

That's probably the best bet.

He can also go for a t3600 or hp z420 system with a e5-1650 cpu. Both system comes in with a decent power supply with a 6 pin power connector so he can just throw in the card in there without any changes.

I have some experience with the optiplex machines as I have built in one myself, but have never used a t3600 or hp z420. They do sound promising though.
