One big red flag is the PSU is probably awful quality.

It will run the games you've stated as you wish I'm sure (despite not much being too available about the 3600X yet) - but I would absolutely get rid of the PSU as soon as.
Obviously price is a different matter, Digital Storm aren't sold by me, but a quick bit of looking tells me (like most cases) you can build it yourself much cheaper.

I mean the specs themselves are fine, with the already-noted exception that the power supplies they throw in as the "standard" are almost invariably cheap garbage needed to last no longer than your warranty with the company.

Personally - I stand by that SeaSonic are still the brand to beat - 10 to 12 year warranty!
I have not bothered with Corsair AXi or Vengeance for example as the above are just as good but cost much less.
Lowest tier PSU I'd be willing to recommend is a Corsair CX. But the above are much better.
You can tell a lot about the quality of a PSU by it's warranty.

Anything 3 years and less is concerning and I would probably never touch myself.
Anything 5 years and less is decent enough, but sometimes questionable.
Then you'll have some of the best that can be around 7 to 10+ years.

For example most Seasonics come with 10 or 12 years warranty. Because they arguably are the best. And their units are fantastic quality. For example:
  • Corsair VS (poor quality) = 3 years
  • EVGA B1 series (E.g. 450B - poor quality) = 3 years
  • Corsair RM (decent quality) = 5 years
  • Seasonic Focus Plus (great quality) = 10 years
  • Corsair AXi (great quality) = 10 years.
As anyone who reads my posts, I am always an advocate of Seasonic PSUs. I use the FOCUS PLUS Gold series myself.

Buying it from a website called digital storm and the PC is $1,397
Digital Storm PSUs are awful quality.

I am not USD based, but doing a quick check, I could pull together a build that was the same but with a decent enough quality PSU for $997

I picked any random case and RAM, but jsut gives you an idea:
