Given the 1070 prices at the moment this is a good deal, cpu wise I wouldn't expect something magical, however, you could always upgrade it to something like ryzen 5 1600 which will cost you around £240 altogether including a new (decent) motherboard looking at the current prices. Motherboard is likely to be much better as well because they probably use something very basic.
Things it doesn't mention...

Speed of the RAM
HDD
Power Supply
and a few other bits.

Messed around with PC Part Picker and this comes out pretty good value, although it seems like a mixed bag of old and new with some undoubtedly slower bits and bobs too.

Only buy if your too lazy to do it yourself. You might need to do a fair bit of upgrading in the near future.
Meh.
This is an unbalanced machine - the price is £100 more than a similar machine with a 1060 6gb card. I'd go for the £100 saving rather than this.

It needs a better processor for this price. That £100 can either buy more memory or contribute towards a better processor

1070 is much better than 1060, worth the extra imo

looking on 3D Mark search results - the i5-6400 with 1070 gives benchmark results between 2207 - 2499.
Compared to:
i5 7600k + 1060 - Highest bench is 2118
i5 8600k + 1060 - Highest Bench is 2289

Ok given that the rest of the specs are going to be varied so is not always a straight comparison, however if buying for Gaming, the increase from 1060 to 1070 is the BEST way to spend an extra £100. Plus to add more memory or an SSD etc is a lot cheaper in future than buying a 1070.

Different strokes for different folks though.
The processor is good enough for even gtx 1070. I have i5 6400 overclocked to 4.0Ghz and gtx 1080 and its flying in 4k 60fps gaming with mix ultra/high settings.

Hey.Bit off-topic but who did you overclock it? It's locked.I have the same proc so a bit curious
Theoretically it's locked but actually it's not. I have ASRock motherboard and there are few official bioses on ASRock website (could be in beta section now) with possibility to overclock locked skylake processors via bclk. As far as I know every motherboard manufacturer at the time being had this possibility with the older version of bios.
