you should be able to commonly find geforce rtx 3070 builds, for around 2k... It is definitely the better card to go for, for those that are budget builds.

At that price with a RTX3060, it's not a hot deal at all. In that price range, or even a little less, you can find builds with RTX3060Ti cards, which are much better for gaming. In the $2K range, you get builds with the 3070.

Where would I look to find a build with a 3070 for the 2K range?

This one for example : https://www.canadacomputers.com/product ... _id=198056

I'm sure you can find similar things at BestBuy. The reason I like the Canada Computers pre-builts is that they use standard off the shelf parts and are expandable/upgradable.

You can also look at the Alienware or Dell websites, although I don't particularly recommend their pre-builts due to the poor design and proprietary components.

Yup, just picked this with my son. It’s 2K before tax.

Does CC usually use decent branded parts in their pre-builds?

They do, the psu, motherboard and case is garbage. Psu is platinum.

It's definitely a great buy at that price. The 3060ti can sell for 1.2k alone.

It depends on the build you choose. They are not the best, but pretty decent.

Crazy how it goes right ? 15 years ago you could build a top of the line PC for 1500.

A build with a Ryzen 5600x and RTX3070 should not be considered a budget PC.
