Deal Alert: Dell XPS Intel Core i7 RTX 3060 Gaming PC for $1219.99

Dell is offering a new deal on its XPS gaming PC equipped with an 11th gen Intel Core i7 processor and an RTX 3060 video card. The RTX 30 series video cards are still nigh impossible to find at retail price without a LOT of elbow grease; you can buy it off eBay and you’ll have to fork over at least $600 for the RTX 3060 variant. In this case, you’re getting a complete, well-rounded RTX 3060 gaming rig, as well as a 1 year warranty, for a very reasonable price.

Dell XPS RTX 3060 Gaming PC for $1219.99

The Dell XPS gaming PC is equipped with an 11th gen Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB of RAM, 1TB SSD, and the RTX 3060 video card. The low price tag might imply that the RTX 3060 is not up to snuff, but nothing could be further from the truth. The RTX 3060 is about 20% faster than the RTX 2060 SUPER and is on par with the RTX 2070, but with the advantage of better DLSS and Ray Tracing compatibility. That means it handles 1080p gaming beautifully and has the chops to take on 1440p and VR gaming as well.

17% Off Dell XPS Alder Lake RTX 30XX Gaming PC

Compared to the previous generation, the new Dell XPS gaming PC is larger in volume (27L vs 19L) and provides more clearance for the CPU and GPU area for much better airflow. That’s important because the new 12th generation Alder Lake processors can run hot under intense loads. The Alder Lake CPU is currently the king of gaming processors; it eclipses all similarly priced AMD processors in gaming and (in most cases) workstation performance. Additionally, the new Dell XPS boasts an Intel Z960 chipset motherboard, DDR5 RAM, and a PCI-E 5.0 bus for your RTX 30 series video card. Your video cards in these two configs are no slouches either: the RTX 3070 is the ultimate card for gaming at 1440p at 144fps or higher, and the RTX 3080 Ti is pretty much the best 4K/VR gaming card out there.
