^^ You probably have to claim just the damaged components.

If you are able to file do not write just a price, it will be much easier to get money back if you are as detailed as possible. Assuming your PC is several years old most of the parts probably won't even be available. List the exact item name if you can with the price you would've paid when you bought it new. If it is something general then write "high end PC gaming RAM 16 GB - 100$", etc.

Is a GTX 1060 with 6 GB of memory for $200 or less too much to ask for?

So as folks are upgrading their systems, I am in the market for fairly modern hardware to update my 2008-era desktop.

new build is done. should last another 5 years like the last.

ryzen 7 1700X @4.1ghz (ended up being cheaper than the 1700 with the bundle at microcenter)
asrock taichi
gskill ripjaws V 32gb 3200mhz
intel 600p 512gb nvme
1080ti armor oc @1900mhz
lg 27" 4k

everything else I reused from my old machine

and unfortunately, I had to switch from my coolermaster nepton 240m to a corsair h110i gt because it's in violation of a patent and won't be getting an AM4 adapter :-\

600p was ~$135
board was $85 after rebate/bundle
cpu was $369
gpu was $720
ram was $240
new water cooler was $125
monitor was $330

So $2000. The psu, case, and soundcard are probably about $300 worth and then I have 3 other older SSDs in it.

I'm selling my 970gtx, nepton 240m, and 8150/16gb ddr3/m5a97 evo (PM if interested) for probably about $400 so I figure about a 1600 net before tax. I wasn't planning on a monitor, but my old monitor had other ideas..
