Not really, the same amount of money gets you a DIY 16GB RAM and 1TB SSD build
I like that case.

Does anyone know if its possible to buy just the case from anywhere?

Why is the 2TB HDD for storage pointless?

Cost of SSD’s these days I just wouldn’t bother with a spinning disk. I’d sack off the small SSD and HDD and get a larger SSD.

Storage and PSUs are two things I'd avoid buying used
This is poor value.

The smallest SSD from next Year will be 512GB due to chip density.
Samsung already makes 1TB chips with multi-layers and looking at the tech. news they are constructing a new chip plant in China.


At a guess £50 for 1TB next Year and NVME has become affordable.

The first SSD drive that I bought was a Samsung 256GB drive that cost me £140.
That's not far off from the cost of a 2TB drive today.

... but that's not really the same thing, is it

Just because you CAN, doesnt mean you SHOULD and the fact remains the deal from the OP includes a legitimate copy and yours doesnt, so theyre not truly comparable
