There have been lots of budget deal type requests but due to the lack of available GPUs under the 3060 and insane price increases for those that are, it just isn't possible right now. For this deal, in spite of price rises (e.g. 3060 now $100+ more than at launch) we've been able to hit the same price point as the previous 3500X/3060 deal via a couple of spec alterations. If you don't fancy the base Biostar B550 motherboard (which will be fine for this spec) there are a larger than normal range of upgrade options available because we're sitting on so damn many mobos.
