Same deal as earlier this month. Ugly case with questionable cooling and annoying Mail-in-rebate, but otherwise good value if you are shopping for a pre-built.

($1599 - $300 instant - $200MIR) = $1099

Just to offer as a benchmark - I am in the process of assembling my new rig. Here are actual prices paid by me for various components (everything bought on sale):

i7-8700K $281
Asus Z370 Prime $136
Corsair 32 GB Vengeance LPX RAM $290
EVGA CLC 280 Liquid / Water CPU Cooler $88
EGA 750W G3 power supply $60
Fractal Design Define R6 case $107

Total: $962

I already have a 512 GB Samsung Evo 860 SSD and OS. and will buy my GPU later this year when it hits my price point. Approximate street price for these three items when on sale is $110 + $400 + $90. So a top-notch complete build would cost around $1412 (subtracting ~$150 for the extra $16 GB RAM in my system).

So, in nutshell, if you don't care about the build quality much, the price in OP is a good price. I would not buy the system, however, at its original price.

Starting to get sick of seeing microcenter deals
No one around me price matches them and the nearest one is states away. That's like saying oh hey I found a deal in my local shop. I might be grumpy ignore me I'm venting.

I will buy 1070ti later this year as prices come down. I am building this machine for AI/machine learning work and can wait.

Prices were after 20% off promo on Amazon in July. I got lucky in that I was able to use the promo twice (they reset it). As such, CPU, cooler, RAM and mobo all came from Amazon two orders). I think I did hit the lower limit on these as far current street prices are concerned. Too bad had to pay 8% sales tax to Amazon.
