As the question asks. I have a low budget, so i just thought of the idea of buying a cheap custom PC already prebuilt like this one

https://www.amazon.co.uk/PALICOMP-Gaming-INTEL-Coffee-3-2Ghz/dp/B07B536KXY/ref=sr_1_32?dchild=1&keywords=Gaming+PC&qid=1589066528&sr=8-32&th=1

Then buy this GPU and OS and add it on: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B083TRG3F6/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&psc=1

Or should i not do that?

Do you know any prebuilts which would be better? Or Any prebuilts i could replace and then add a Good GPU on after?

Please answer and thank you

I doubt the stock PSU in that prebuilt would suffice for that RX 5600 XT.

You could build a comparable system with more memory & a SSD for the same price.

That sounds like it would work but it's at least £100 More and i don't know how to build a PC. Moreover my parents wouldn't allow it. They doubt my abilities.

Well you'd end up having to replace the PSU anyways in that prebuilt so it really doesn't make sense to buy one with those changes in mind. If your parents won't allow you to build it then buy a prebuilt with a decent GPU in it as at the very least the PSU should be up to the task. For your budget you should be able to find something like a Ryzen 2600/RX 570 system.
