An acquaintance is selling this gaming PC and I'd like to some help. I know nothing about gaming PCs. Thanks for any help!

Brand New Cyber Power Master Gaming PC $400

AMD Ryzen 7 2700 - 16GB Memory - AMD Radeon RX 580 8GB - 2TB HDD + 240GB SSD - White

NEW!- Box still sealed from manufacturer
Current component prices on NewEgg- $809.00 Value
$329.00 Ryzen 7 2700x
$170.00 Radeon RX 580/ 8GB
$70.00 16GB DDR4 SDRAM
$60.00 White case with RGB
$75.00 Motherboard (ASrock B450m Pro4-cb)
$20.00 MS Windows 10 (Normally $100 but you can get creative)
$35.00 SSD 240GB
$50.00 HD 2TB
In terms of spec it's good for gaming at 1080p, and is better than you'd get self-building for that price.

Of course, 2nd hand goods don't have a warranty, so there's that risk, and if something turns out to be wrong with it - known or not known to the person selling it - it could impact your personal relationship with them (buying expensive things from friends can be or turn complicated).

The parts are modern so if one of them turned out to be faulty, a replacement would be easy to source. And buying a replacement would still leave you with a fairly decent value system. But whether it's worth the potential risk/hassle of 2nd hand goods is a personal choice for you to make :)
