For $300 not bad at all. You can't buy a pre-built for $300 that's even close to that system. There's a little room in there for upgrades too. More ram and a better gpu.

It's nice for $300. You'll want to upgrade the GTX 470 but you don't HAVE to, you can still play most games currently out. Plonk down another $250-300 for a good modern video card and you'll be set.

So, it's worth buying? Will I be able to play most games on high and ultra? Is it future proof?

Yes, No, No.

Just some quick math on it, trying to build it yourself the ram would be almost $100 and the HDDs would be $200 (at $65-70 a piece, I haven't looked at prices in a while). Even if it's just to reuse those parts it's worth it imo, so long as they work fine.

No, it's not futureproof. You can't expect a PC with a 5-year-old CPU to be futureproof. But it's still good. Like I said, you'll want to upgrade the video card if you want to play modern games on high.
