90% of the time, you can price out the components your self and come out way cheaper, and probably better quality.
Also I mean the prebuilt, not put it together yourself, if you want to go down the put it together route, then yes a gaming PC isn't just a marketing term, but here it appears that the OP wants a prebuilt.
A 3060 is the equivalent of a 980. A 980 struggles with the modern games. (This is accounting for the fact that the 2000 series was the 1000 series with "ray tracing", there was no improvement fps wise, and 30fps is "struggling") 16 is bare minimum for gaming, I run into issues with 24.
From my understanding the 1500/1600 series are a slightly improved 1000 or non "ray tracing" 2000 series.
Also search "gaming pc" and look at the specs, then price out a "business" one with the same specs, I can about guarantee you it will be cheaper.
