Build vs prebuilt.

Title.

 

Seeing as covid-19 is making it impossible for me to get any pc components in a reasonable time frame I was wondering if this computer at staples was worth the cost.

The total would be $980 Canadian. Only reason I am going with this one is because they had it in stock. It's not amazing by any means but its something I could have in my hands now vs who knows when. 

 

Is it worth it? Is it horribly overpriced? Looking for opinions.

You can get a 5700xt and ryzen 5 3600 build for that price. So yeah it's overpriced.

Look for companies that can put together a system of your spec.  They may have parts in hand, have better supply lines to remain open.  It will take a few weeks to get rather than a few days, perhaps, but you will always get a better system.
