I see it as I could build a comparable system minus the GPU myself for 6-700 with better parts. That's 8-900 difference before tax, with tax included you'd HAVE to sell the GPU for 900 or more just to break even and I wouldn't count on that.

i see this as buy the system if you can get one and then sell the gpu for $1000 and get the rest of the system for only $500. now that's a good deal.......
If you look at completed sales on ebay, you can land one pretty easily for under $800. There are few that have even sold in the $500's. Under $800 and you're only looking at about $100 profit after fee's.
 
Don't get fooled by that system. I just took a good look at the parts and the pictures to figures out what's inside.

That motherboard is a B450M DS3H. That is the cheapest B450 board at 62 dollars.

Stock cooler.

Look at the RAM. The heatsink on them look so cheap. Couldn't even find them on PCPartPicker.

They took the cheapest parts and built a system. System below minus the GPU. I had to take a PSU bronze because it only says 650 bronze PSU. So I could have taken a cheaper PSU than a CX but I didn't wanted to go to the VS series.

They only say "Intel NVMe SSD". Could be any of the Intel SSD.

The system below could have a better board. A B550 board for 40 more dollars. 3600MHz RAM for 20 more dollars, gold PSU for 10 more dollars and I would have taken a 90 dollars Crucial P2 NVMe instead cutting the price of 20 dollars. So ~ 50 dollars more for better parts.

So 858 dollars + RTX 3070 that you wait for restock to buy one at ~ 550 dollars and you just saved 150 dollars and you have better parts.

It's not that the system is not at a good price considering the price of the 3070. It's just that apart from the CPU and GPU I don't like the parts in it.
