Literal answer? yes, it's a fine enough system for gaming.

Expert answer? Not a good value, could spend that money on some better hardware options if building it yourself.

In case you are someone who thinks it may be hard to put together a PC I can assure you it's not. Everything plugs into the motherboard using a very unique connector as well as the fact that everything is properly and clearly labeled on the motherboard itself so there is virtually not chance of plugging the wrong thing into the wrong place. And there are a plethora of YouTube videos out there that will guide you through the process.

If you want a pre built system and like that one then go for it.

If you'd like a parts list for a build that you can put together yourself that will have better hardware for about the same price then don't hesitate to say so and myself and others will gladly give you builds.

I have an old computer that I can harvest stuff from all I really need is Windows 10 Home, Motherboard, CPU, Ram, and Video Card.

I too didn't notice that you were in Canada. After further review of the hardware that comes in the pre built PC and comparing to what I could put together on PCPP I have come to the conclusion that it is a pretty good deal for the most part seeing as how it's put together for you already.
However, if you'd like to get more performance when it comes to the RAM and CPU as well as being able to guarantee the quality of the PSU you can build it yourself for slightly less than that price retail. Be noted, that the price from this list bellow is after a $30 mail in rebate. the initial retail price before any applicable shipping and taxes is $850.94. So for roughly the same cost overall out of pocket you can, as I stated earlier, get better for the money.
