Found this 78% reduced desktop (No monitor/os)
ADMI Gaming PC: Ryzen 5 2600X Six Core 4.25GHz, GTX 1060 6GB, 8GB 2400MHz, 1TB HDD, MB520 Case, Wifi 300MBPS, Windows 10

Reading reviews it seems Average at best for games -notice c.o.d. World War 2 doesn't run without pixelating etc-from an existing owners review.
I had intended to purchase this p.c. With 8 gb ram/1tb hdd/Nvidia gtrx 1060 6gb-ddr5
Though have since tried some youtube cpu/GPUs tests and its seems the NVidia 1660TI 3gb would maybe provide 50/10FPS speed bump in games.
I could also add an ssd at later stage though Initially storage wont be a. Problem with 1tb hdd and my recent LaCie 1TB external.

Is the low cost of this p.c. Reduced by 78% -due to the pending Ryzen 3000 CPU's -q3 2019 and Navi GPU's

Is it best to wait on the new line up and avoid spending a few hundred on the reduced Amazon p.c.

    :)

    Seems good for less than £300. But if it is not up to your necessary spec, why bother?

    Well done spotted my error -I thought it came with No O/S!

    Maybe I should have asked mser's; any experience with Ryzen 5 and or either Nvidia 1060 6 gb or 1660TI 3gb.
    At least Amazon reviewers were honest -it sounds like an almost instant ram/GPUs upgrade is required -is that correct.

    Unsurprising, given the price.

    Any idea how often these serious reductions happen.
    Is the change of seller genuine or Amazon tactics.
    No regret missing this though wouldn't mind re considering if a similar p.c. Was offered approx £300.
    Good news that Ryzen3K and Navi aren't far away, maybe Ryzen 3/5 etc's could get reduced more permanently.
    Even self costed builds of similar Ryzen 5 2600x Nvivdia 1660TI are way nearer +700 mark- i.e. more of the original cost when I included monitor +win10
