No, i've seen your post here. Why not just build one or look at something like NZXT's building service? How much are you wanting to spend? And what is needed

I literally have no clue what does what & Don't really have an interest in building a Pc. Plus i've been told that if i wanted to i should wait a month or two until the gpu prices or whatever go down

Terrible, when you consider that most games these days want 4GB VRam as a recommended. That 1060 only has 3GB. 2K for this is laughable. I built my PC for 2K a couple years ago and it is still better than this, and I have a 980TI with 6GB Ram.

But, the PC market is terrible right now because of Crypto miners are raising prices on RAM and GPUs upwards for 2-3x's the normal prices.

Edit: Don't want to build your PC? If you live in a decent sized city/town, I am sure there is someone on Craigslist who can build it for you. I'd charge someone only 15-20 to do it, and I can put a PC together in under 30 minutes(not including downloading software). Buy the parts separate, save yourself literally hundreds, and have someone else put it together for you.

Here is what I put together for my PC, at the price(s) of the parts when I bought them. Not current price. [ Register or Signin to view external links. ]

I was able to re-create the same list, minues a M.2 drive, and come out at the same price point. I did force the GPU to go to 600, as I cannot find a place with it in stock right now. A 1060 goes for around 500-550 right now and since the 980Ti is a better GPU, I kept it at 600. This build is the same price(almost) as your pre-built and it has better specs.
