Acer Predator Orion 3000 Gaming PC (Intel Ci7-11700F/1TB SSD/16GB RAM/Nvidia RTX 3060Ti/Windows 10)
Honestly sounds amazing for only 2k with 3060 Ti and intel i7 only thing that would have to be switched is the power source and maybe better cooling fans or a better case (if you have suggests for a better case of fans please send I am very bad at this stuff)

Thank you for reaching out to us on the Best Buy Forums today. Yes for a prebuilt the Acer Predator Orion 3000 is a good deal for the price. Yes, I would suggest to change the power source to anything above 500 watt will work.
If you have any more questions, please let me know.

ACER has really stepped up in the last few years to make solid good performing gaming towers such as this one.
the scaricity of GPU's had been driving the price up.
I am not finding the same one you are referencing, however there is a Orion 3000 with an RTX 3070 at that price.
But both cards are outstanding and 16GB of ram is critical for modern gaming.
However, there are some others available that have slighly better stats than this one for the same price or with in a $100
But for this price this is a pretty dang good buy.
Personally I will never buy a gaming computer with a spinning HDD anymore. With the OS loaded onto an SSD my computer starts up in about 9 seconds or less. Runs quiet.
Another possibility to consider is the audio output.
I got my current computer not realizing it came with HD Audio output. Meaing I can hook up a 5.1 or 7.1 sound system to my computer. For me it is game changing sound. I picked of a logitec 5.1 comptuer speaker system and it just blows me away.
The back of the computer will have a slot with 6 audio outputs as seen in the image below
