Ok but you are better off saving up and investing in something thats upgradeable.
Just to add to what's gone before: for anyone tempted by this but not interested in building your own (or doesn't feel capable - that's completely legitimate, and why pre-builts are a great option for many), don't buy it. It's a dead-end platform with a mediocre processor and no SSD (in 2020 no-one should even consider getting a PC without one as no other single component will make more difference in your day to day experience). The pictures also suggests it has 4 x USB 2.0 and 2 x USB 3.0 ports on the rear, not 6 x USB 2.0, so other parts of the description, or the pictures, may also be inaccurate or misleading.

(I'm still relatively new here: my intention isn't to bag on the poster's deal, just to try to give a little information to people considering this.)

I can only second this. £422 on already old tech with no upgrade path is a waste of mone. A lowly 4 core processor, not enough ram out of the box, soon to be a 2 generation old Nvidia video card without enough vram, no SSD. Look out for a CCL Ryzen deals if you want a prebuilt deal.

if you're looking for a budget gaming pre-built this one is a massively superior system with a platform that isn't dead in the water. Much better CPU and GPU.

Pretty much this. What a difference just 50 odd quid gets you. I’d also add that it uses quality components, from one of the best retailers and comes with a 3 year warranty. No brainier!

Wow, it must me so, if you say it in such a patronising way

Not intended at all, but it is still true.
