If your more specific about your goals (the specific game, desired resolution, budget) it can be easier to help with feedback and suggestions on where to spend less or more to get better results.

Like off hand to watch videos and play 1 game 1TB HDD is huge and buying a similar priced but smaller SSD could be a better use of funds.

Looking at warframe minimum specs it will pretty much run on a potato of a computer, i'm not sure if 16GB ram would make a noticable difference. But an SSD would have defineitly helped with boot times and such and general responsiveness.

Ask about GPU when you are ready to buy since a new one comes out every year and impact the used market. With an Ryzen 5 2600, I would go with a mid-range card. Anything like 2080 or above would be a waste. I would get at least a 500GB SSD with onboard cache / DRAM. I would also get a better PSU like Seasonic later.

For your uses it should be fine except for the lack of an ssd. That should be the first thing you buy. After that, let us know when you decide it’s time to upgrade again and we can recommend stuff for you.

Enjoy!

The build is a modern one, although, me personally, I am a big fan of repurposing older corporate machines for everyday use and buying used GPUs. You could have probably got a more powerful GPU ( these days I just bought a 4GB RX 480 for 100 cad ).
Lately I prefer my systems to have a fast boot drive, 250/500 GB SSD, with an external drive on usb 3.0 for mass storage, presently I have a 4 TB portable drive.
It is really debatable how much computing power a home user really needs but in general an older Core i5 does the trick. You have a hex core system, a solid foundation, that will allow easy expansion in case you feel you will need it! Your next upgrade target should be the SSD, it will make the system so much faster.
