While I broadly agree - I built a 1070 rig myself in a discrete M-ITX case for just over £900.

1060 is OK for most things, but not the GPU you'd want for 4k gaming or even some 1440p. If spending this kind of money for a gaming desktop I'd be more inclined to go with a better GPU.

£80 for convenience saved in building, with regards the warranty which is 3 years.. and also if you are a noob, you aren't making an £800 venture which could go very wrong if you make a mistake, I don't see how that's necessarily a bad thing. For some people the time it takes to watch enough YouTube videos to be even slightly confident, let alone actually source and build the pc is worth the extra. Heat added for a good looking build, it ticks all the boxes for gaming, decent graphics card, ssd for the OS and HDD for game storage, 6gb vram and 8gb memory which could be upgraded later, lots of ports and wifi, and a decent CPU for a balanced build, it's all looking quite good...

Not bad but better off building your own with an i5-8600k. A 1060 is ideal for 1080p.

Going to have to vote cold on this one. You can get one built with the likes of DinoPC for less (same specs different case) and includes 5 years standard warranty.
8gb ram. Wtf
Can some tell me how this is in comparison? It’s £1020 but has a 1070 etc.

When people keep saying that on prebuilt machines I think people devalue their time. It’s not completely wasted time as you are learning something but it’s a significant time sink especially if the person isn’t experienced with doing it. And that’s without the time taken to also have to research what parts to pick. That’s time you could be doing something else for example earning money in your job (or doing something else outside your main job to earn an income). £80 is a fair premium for saving a minimum of a coupe of hours but for many much more
