I would not imagine playing anything over 4k with lower than a gtx 1080 card and why the gtx 1060 6gb model suggestion over the 3gb one, because 4k and up sucks vram like crazy.

I looked up Cemu performance and it really needs high speed RAM (and more than 8GB), so I can't cheap out on the RAM.

One last revision:
https://pcpartpicker.com/list/BvHC3F

I decided to go with the PSU that I already bought because Gamers Nexus happened to use the same PSU in their recommended build:

I would not risk a gaming build for such a low end psu, but oh well it is your money you may be potentially wasting here as the psu is pretty much one of the most important part in gaming builds and you should never skimp on that part as a psu failure can destroy your other parts with it.

Dont get that overpriced memory and instead put that towards a good quality psu with 550-650w range and you will end up being happier, because the computer will not explode just like that by simply using it.

At this point TC is doing the equivalent of sticking his fingers in his ears and going 'lalalala', so I wouldn't bother arguing reason. Let him be disappointed when his rig under-performs and his PSU causes re-boots.

I've finished buying all the parts:
https://pcpartpicker.com/list/f7vPM8

I had to get different memory because PCPartPicker had wrong info on the other RAM. It was actually DDR4-3600 CAS 18 (listed on Corsair's website), not DDR4-3600 CAS 15.
I chose Trident Z 2x8GB DDR4-3600 CAS 16.

The case was chosen by setting max price to $50 and sorting by highest rated, and then I read the reviews on it.

The GPU was chosen because it was the cheapest GTX 1060 6GB (not even any used ones could be found on ebay/amazon for cheaper).

I'm going to stick with the PSU because I don't have enough money left over to buy a new one and Gamers Nexus made a video with it. Worst case scenario, if it f***s up my PC, I can buy the Square Trade warranty (all parts bought from Newegg).

Why would it underperform? The CPU is equivalent to an overclocked previous-gen i5 with higher IPC, and the GPU is roughly equivalent to the Xbox One X's power. I've also got DDR4-3600 CAS 16 RAM.

It's basically an i7 8700K with 4 instead of 6 cores and no hyperthreading.

It's more powerful than my old i5 4690 (higher clock and IPC) and R9 270 and that did 4K gaming just fine.

The one game (that wasn't emulated) I recorded on my old system was Runescape NXT client:
https://youtube.com/watch?t=12s&v=bmoca7MpCTs

(There was FPS loss because of impact of recorder. It ran at 30FPS without recording)

It could also do original Skyrim max settings 4K at 30FPS, although I only recorded the 1080P60 version because at the time, I couldn't get 4K recording working.
