This budget SKU will need to have a SSD + a similar CPU as the Series X with a GPU likely in the 5600X/5700 department, with anywhere between 12-16GBs of ram. If the series X is $600, I can see this being in the $350-400 range, depending how far they tweak it. If they scale it too far down in the CPU department and decide not to include a SSD, that will hinder performance of the Series X due to devs focusing on making the game playable on the 'budget SKU'
I'm assuming the series X will aim for 4k gaming, while this system will aim for 1080p-1440p. If they focus the scaling on the GPU front, this is easily achievable.
