Nvidia and AMD's brand new components aren't exactly easy to come by at the moment, but if you're in the market for a brand new system anyway, then here's a Cyber Monday gaming PC deal for you: A Vybe PC from Maingear with an RTX 3070 and Ryzen 5600X for $1,599.
Cyber Monday 2020 deals: the place to go for the all the best Black Friday bargains.
The Nvidia RTX 3070 rivals the much more expensive RTX 2080 Ti—the performance jump from RTX 20-series to the RTX 30-series was substantial—so it's no wonder these cards continue to zoom out of stock so quickly. In a world without scalpers, these GPUs would usually start at around $499, but so far hunting for one can lead to many hours of hitting F5—believe me, I've been there, and it's no substitute for spending that time playing Call of Duty instead.
Speaking of components that are difficult to get hold of, this system also has the recently released AMD Ryzen 5600X CPU under its hood. As he mentioned in his review, Alan reckons this is a great gaming chip, and it's also capable for video encoding and 3D rendering, if that's how you like to spend your evenings.

$1,899 $1,599 at Maingear (save $300)
It's proving to be especially difficult to find RTX 3070 cards and Ryzen 5600X CPUs at the moment, but this prebuilt gaming PC has both installed and ready to go. Saving $300 and not having to spend any time building is pretty decent.
Considering the other components in this build, you'll be future-proofing for all the exciting games that await on the horizon, too, including Far Cry 6, which comes with the system. For storage, this PC includes a 512GB Intel NVMe M.2 SSD for fast-loading games, as well as a 1TB HDD. We wish the SSD were bigger, but at least you can put all your non-game files onto the hard drive.
One thing that I really appreciate about this build is that, along with all its swanky new components, it's also rocking some tasteful RGB lighting. The case looks nice and clean with just a few glowing accents, rather than the in-your-face light shows that some popular cases end up displaying over your walls.
From what I can see, the only problem with this deal is that Maingear can't guarantee delivery before Christmas. While this could put a spanner in the works for your holiday gaming plans, I think it's worth considering if you're looking for a full upgrade.
