Link to prebuilt:
Found this prebuilt on a Danish website, so I know most people wont be able to understand the text (since it's a English speaking forum) . But the gist of it is:
NVIDIA GeForce 3070 graphics card
AMD Ryzen 7 5800x CPU
700w power supply
16gb ram (2x8gb)
Lots of USB ports
Windows, WIFI and Bluetooth included
I don't think fans are included, but I can add them myself (I think, not sure)
and its a lot cheaper than other builds I've seen that have a similar model.
(Though I cant find where it says the motherboard model)
What do you think? Is it too good to be true, a scam or my next pc? I hate the case (its not pink lol), but I would save a couple thousand kroner if I bought this prebuilt instead of building my own custom pc.

this forums will only give advice on builds bought from PCS. Do check forums like tom hardware for general advices

As this forum is owned by PCSpecialists we cannot comment on builds from other companies/websites.

On a broader note, prebuilts tend to be a poorer choice than a custom build. They tend to focus on the 'flashy' components, usually the CPU and GPU, and then put in very budget cases, motherboards, PSU, cooling, storage etc to keep the cost down. Paying a little extra for a custom build gives you the assurances that every component is solid and will last you for a reasonable amount of time.

i have sent him private message regards the built as my gf has experience here in denmark with prebuilts. But yeah as you said, this si not really the place for feedback regarding competition

Thanks everyone for pointing @AusUle elsewhere. Sadly we're not allowed to give advice on non-PC Specialist builds. Sorry.

I'm locking this thread.
