Alienware's Aurora line of gaming PCs are among our favorite. They're stylish, powerful, and fully customizable. For a limited time, you can save $600 on this epic desktop. It packs an Intel Core i7-11700F CPU, an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 Ti GPU, 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD. At $600 off, this is a great deal.

The Alienware Aurora R12 comes with an 11th gen Intel Core i7-11700F (8-core, 16MB cache, 2.5GHz to 4.9GHz w/Intel Turbo Boost Max) processor. It also has an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 Ti 8GB GDDR6 graphics card, 16GB of RAM and a 512GB M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD. This unit also comes with Windows 11 pre-installed.

We think this is a perfect gaming desktop for those seeking to upgrade or who may be new to gaming desktops. The Aurora 12’s powerful CPU and GPU make it ideal for playing modern titles like Doom Eternal, Red Dead Redemption 2 and Far Cry 6. You won’t be able to max out all settings in certain games but playing on medium to high settings at 1080p should provide you with an exceptional gaming experience. The inclusion of Windows 11 is a bonus, especially since Xbox Game Pass is integrated into Microsoft’s latest operating system. If you have an Xbox account, you'll have access to over 100 games right from the jump.
