Hello everyone!

I want to build my first ever gaming pc. I saw a website called alternate that delivers pre-build gaming pc. I know that prebuild gaming are most of the times a scam. But this deal seemed quite okay for me though? Can someone help me out and check if this is the best what I can get out of my money. Or are there better gaming pc for around the same price (1500 euros).

thanks in advice!

Pricing doesn't seem too extortionate, but if willing to build you could certainly do better with the same budget (as is often the case).
