You can do a build with similar parts for around $1200.

For $1350 you can easily do something like this:

RX6600XT is right between the 3060Ti and 3060 in gaming performance. You lose out on raytracing, but that is a serious performance penalty for mid-range cards.

1TB SSD. i5 K edition, which gets you 4 efficiency cores, and a decent air cooler. Z690 board for no real reason, not much more than B660 with Wifi...Kind of a black and white theme (mostly because of the GPU.)
