The Alienware Aurora R13 is our best gaming PC overall. It's stylish, features a chassis with plenty of ports/upgrade paths, and offers great performance for the price. This config features a Core i7-12700F CPU, 16GB of RAM, 512GB SSD, and RTX 3060 Ti CPU. Use coupon code "GAMING10" to knock its price to just $989. 

The Alienware Aurora R13 Gaming Desktop is one of the best gaming PCs you can buy. In our Alienware Aurora R13 review, we said the desktop offers a healthy selection of ports and an easy to access side panel that unlocks to give you quick access to your PC's innards. The redesigned chassis also sports enough ventilation that even after gaming in 4K for hours, we only noticed a mild hum emanating from the PC

More importantly, we found that the powerful components inside the Aurora R13 give it more than enough muscle to handle pretty much any work you need to do on it, even with the base configuration.
