I'd say that's a decent setup and should be able to handle tasks and games well for the price point.

Would say that the power supply doesn't leave a huge amount of room for future expansion. Also, the GTX 1050 is a good card, with it's own ups and downs. Would advise reading some reviews about it to make sure it's what you want.
