3200 RAM but the mobo is 2400, you may as well drop the RAM down to get tighter CAS timings, you will probably drop this down in BIOS anyway so why not save a bit of money and get some 2400 C11 or something.

Hell, you are spending money on shit that doesn't even need future proofed
Maybe because he does stuff that needs more RAM? I have 16gb and max it out pretty often. If you disable page file (which you should) then you can burn RAM really quickly. It depends on what he needs...
Z170 isn't cheap I think, even the cheapest are $100 afaik. There are cheaper options but it depends what he needs...
Obviously it's a luxury item. I've been using 160Hz for many many years and personally I love them. Low frame rate monitors hurt my eyes and looks like a slideshow. Yeah he could get a $20 low resolution low frequency monitor I think this monitor very clearly is just because he wants it...
Again it depends what he needs. Maybe he doesn't have a media or storage server so he has to rely on local storage. In this case having a few TB isn't unusual. In my server I have 9TB but if I didn't have a server I would have to put them locally wouldn't I?
Does not exist. You can have a system that is easily upgradable but you should never put your money towards hoping that your build can function beyond its lifespan. All systems will degrade in roughly equal time, future proofing is just a buzzword that gets thrown around by marketing teams.
Unless you are going to argue that going full analogue and getting objectively the best components that are no longer being improved upon is "future proofing" (eg getting a good CRT monitor, PS/2 keyboard, analogue headphones, etc), which I would not classify as such.
