Default Is this a good pc for rendering and gaming?

I'm looking for a good PC for rendering my 3D work and for sometimes playing games on, as well as other typical things, such as internet browsing, etc. I'm not well-versed when it comes to hardware, so I'd appreciate some opinions!

I was going to build my own pc from scratch, but somebody has offered me all of the above for £800. He'd only built the machine a year ago and is adamant that he's taken great care of it.

He's offered the following two screens with it too, to make it a dual screen pc, for a grand total of £1100.

Is this a good deal for a rendering and gaming pc? Or would you recommend I just build one myself? Thanks!
