I've made a config for you as per your budget.
I was looking for Ryzen 3 3300x but it's not listed there. (suggestion will be to go with 3300x, if you are comfortable stretching your budget a bit)
Although, it's a bit more than your mentioned budget. But, you might be able to save those additional $100 by buying a cheaper case and finding better deals online in US which I'm sure you will be able to.
PS- do visit your local micro center store, they have mostly good deals on all products and they price match any product if you find a better deal online and show it to them during checkout.

Note:The MSI B450 GAMING PRO CARBON AC ATX AM4 Motherboard has an additional 4-pin ATX power connector but the SeaSonic FOCUS Plus Gold 650 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply does not. This connector is used to supply additional 12V current to the motherboard. While the system will likely still run without it, higher current demands such as extreme overclocking or large video card current draws may require it.

That motherboard and cooler are a bit of an overkill for that CPU, mobo shouldnt cost more than the CPU itself and plonking 109$+ on an AIO for a 129$ CPU makes no sense either, he could go for a cheaper mobo like the B450 Tomahawk Max and avoid the cooler altogether and get a much better CPU like the 3700x instead.
Since he's in the USA, he should wait for Cyber Monday and visit his local Microcenter if there's one around him for some sweet deals.
