Where the hell are you getting these prices? I suspect the only way to get them cheaper would be to steal them.
The $600 clearly has the best value, a modern processor (the others are a gen old), a decent GPU, SSD's, 22" monitor, great case and a high end pre-made water cooling loop to boot. Only caveat with it is minimal storage space, so throw a Hard Drive at it and its perfect.

I have no idea how they are making a profit on that build. That is just ridiculously cheap.
