The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 isn’t the flagship 30-series graphics card, but even more than year one from its initial release it’s still comfortably holding its own. Its popularity has resulted in a pre-built gaming PC being one of the best ways to get hold of this powerful Nvidia GPU without having to overpay on the resale market.
Underneath the slick Lunar Light chassis with high-performance CPU liquid cooling, you’ll find an AMD Ryzen 7 5900 processor, 16GB of RAM and a 1TB SSD. This hard drive is plenty capable of storing several of the best PC games, but you can upgrade to a 2TB SSD for an extra $372 if you want storage issues to be less of a concern.
The SSD is not the only aspect of this PC that can be upgraded and customised. For an additional $303 you can swap out the Nvidia RTX 3060 for a Nvidia RTX 3070, or if you want to go all out you can pay an extra $793 for an Nvidia RTX 3080 TI. You can also upgrade to 32GB of RAM for $196 or swap out the processor starting from an extra $147. Of course, none of these upgrades are essential, but the flexibility to mould the Alienware Aurora R10 PC to fit your specific needs is appreciated.
Whether you’re looking to overhaul your current gaming PC setup, or are completely new to playing video games on a desktop, this deal should be on your radar. We’ve seen comparable offers sell out fairly quickly, so make sure to have a look before all the stock has been snapped up.
