The price is about right as far as pre builts go although you could build your own with an RTX 3060 + B560 MB + i5 11400F that would match that performance and do it for less cost.
I'm actually getting it for almost 150 cheaper with coupon codes. You can't get rtx 3060 or better rn for this price. I've gone thru many forums and videos and rn they are overpriced and/or out of stock, otherwise I would be building it myself. At least this way I believe this rig could last 5 years before needing upgrades. Just need to make sure I didn't choose anything that's crap, I'm not savvy at hardware. Tired of console.

That prebuild is solid. No cheap components that I can see.

Here's an example of what you could do. That cpu is due to hit the shelves en masse within the next two weeks.

That all looks great and idk how you did it lol. Every one else has told me prebuilt is the way to go RN because of the pandemic and availability. My issue with this is I have no idea how to put this stuff together. Does any of this stuff come with warranties? Wonder how tax would be?

TBH that prebuild is a decent deal imo. Quality components including case, MB, RAM and PSU.

Do you know if paying for pro wiring and package inserts are worth it?

Build is complete as shown above and is ordered. I will try to come back and let everyone know how well it works with games I play and/or any issues with assembly. Thank you to everyone who replied!

Thinking about this monitor. Thoughts?

Nice monitor ... the thing is anything larger than 24 - 25" @ 1080P and the pixels look a bit stretched. 27" and larger is more of a 1440P thing.

This monitor will allow you to use Nvidia G Sync.

Think I'm moving now towards this one. Feel like it would be good for a few GPU upgrades. What do you think?
