Whats a Desktop Deal:

There are many factors you need to take into account in order to make something a deal. Manufacturer, Product line, Specs and warranty are usually what to look at when figuring that out. You need to consider prices as well, sometimes you get a price so hot that it doesn't matter what company it is.

Generally speaking here are the guidelines for Intel processors:

i3 8th Gen processor - Under $300 is usually a hot deal, Under $350 is decent
i5 8th Gen Processor - Under $400 is a Usually a Hot Deal
i7 8th Gen Processor - Under $600 is a Usually Hot Deal

to be continued....

Any recommendations?

What's with people on Ebay selling new xps machines but without the better graphics card?
They take the card and sell it or use it elsewhere? GPU

Are the GPUs good enough for crypto mining? There's a shortage of high end gpu because of demand for gaming pc's and mining rigs.

It's hard to get good GPUs these days. Seems like the workaround for that seller is to buy a fully built PC, take out the GPU (to keep) and sell the rest to get back sone money.
