Should I buy this prebuilt with monitor for 1500 euro due to the market situation?

Hello,
How are you?
I am currently without a gaming pc.
Initially I was looking at doing another build, but the current prices of ram and gpu had me looking at prebuilts.
So I saw this config and it made me think if I should go for it.

The specs are:
i7 7700
16gb ddr4 2400
b250 board
240gb sata ssd
2tb sata hhd
gtx 1080 8gb
450w psu

From what I can probably tell, the PSU is not going to be good probably.
A b250 board should be ok for a 7700 at stock since it doesn't OC.
2400 ram is not great but then again a b250 board will not run higher speed ram
a gtx 1080 is good, but it is probably a low quality with a plastic blower cooler.

But still, I can get this prebuilt for 1500 euros with a 32 inch 1440 165hz g-sync monitor in a bundle.
That is nice since I also don't have a monitor currently.
The price really has me thinking!

I know it won't overclock, the ram is slow, gpu probably won't overclock either or it will sound like a vaccum cleaner.
But still, this can probably handle all games at 1440p and carry me trough the mining apocalypse.
What are your thoughts on this?

Should I pull the trigger?
Or continue to look at a build?

Thanks for your help.
Cheers!
