Question Is this pre built worth it?

scan.co.uk are a fairly decent company. I would be nervous not knowing the specific psu but they should pick something adequate and the system does come with a warranty. A high quality 550w should run that ok, the question is the quality. If you contact scan I expect they will let you choose a specific psu with a charge for any additional price.

Could you suggest a good psu that would be worth while, im unsure if the cooling of the systems good too? Finally (sorry for all the questions) would this rund AAA games on hight at high fos and upgradable

A RMx 750w or 850w would give you the ability to upgrade to any gpu currently available and is a good price for the quality.

That system will run any AAA game at great FPS on either 1080p or 1440p. Hopefully you have a high Hz monitor. That system can be upgraded but the motherboard is very basic but usually when you upgrade cpu you often upgrade the motherboard at the same time.

Hi ive never built a pc before so im trying to stay clear if possible l, how about this system https://www.ebuyer.com/1263053-alphasync-rtx-3070-core-i5-16gb-ram-1tb-hdd-500gb-ssd-gaming-as-d5900
It's going to need another stick of RAM so it runs in dual channel .. easy enough to do. That cpu is two generations old ... soon to be three generations old after Alder Lake is released. Any local PC shops nearby you that will put together a PC if you order the parts?

In fact i may be able to go to pc world to see if they could do it, would that build meet the requirements for high/ultra settings in all games and is it future proof i may buy the parts and get a pc store to build it for me like you suggested
