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.
Screen1 - IYAMA E2271HDS 22" LED WIDESCREEN, HDMI/DVI-D HD 1920x1080
Screen2 - ASUS 24" LED WIDESCREEN 1920x1080 HDMI/DVI
Is this a good deal for a rendering and gaming pc? Or would you recommend I just build one myself? Thanks!
