I am thinking on buying a prebuilt system from Cybertron pc.

They are offering for 1200CAD, A 16G 2400 Duel challanel ram, RX580 8GB, a none upgradeable mother board. With an i5-9400F.

Would you say this is worth the price? I looked on pc part picker gives me a worth of around 800$.

My question is I am a first time buildler. Do I risk doing it myself or should I get it. Thanks

I suppose with everything else included would look something like this?
