Is this a decent deal at $899? I know the gpu is a bit underpowered and the HD's are a bit on the small size, but it should be adequate for what I need at the moment. I just don't want to get hosed.

I guess I would say not bad, though I'd personally build my own.

Not a terrible deal but I would say avoid the 1060 3GB at all costs. The 6GB version is way better and not much of a price difference. You could buy it and sell the 1060 3GB and upgrade later on if you wish too.
